Using CMake with GNU Make: How can I see the exact commands?
It is convenient to set the option in the
CMakeLists.txt file as:
I use CMake with GNU Make and would like to see all commands exactly (for example how the compiler is executed, all the flags etc.).
GNU make has
--debug, but it does not seem to be that helpful are there any other options? Does CMake provide additional flags in the generated Makefile for debugging purpose?
I was trying something similar to ensure the
-ggdb flag was present.
Call make in a clean directory and grep the flag you are looking for. Looking for
debug rather than
ggdb I would just write.
make VERBOSE=1 | grep debug
-ggdb flag was obscure enough that only the compile commands popped up.
