We have our own CTest script runner.
In that, I’m not sure how best to use
ctest_empty_binary_directory, and its interplay with
The bin folder seems to be created in ctest_start; so it seems that
ctest_empty_binary_directory should be called before it?
The problem is, I only want to empty the directory in case the build actually runs; meaning that for “Continuous” mode, it should only empty the bin folder if there were any updates; but if I do the emptying after the update step, then the configure step complains about a missing bin directory.
If I do the update before the
ctest_start, it complains that
ctest_start has to be called before
How is this handled in the “default” script? (i.e. whatever runs the dashboard mode when no user script is given; Is that default script available as a cmake script somewhere maybe so that I could look it up how it’s handled there?) Is the emptying of the bin folder even triggered there under some conditions?
(EDIT: does share\cmake-CMAKE_VERSION\Templates\CTestScript.cmake.in get used somehow? - there
CTEST_EMPTY_BINARY_DIRECTORY is commented out?)
