Thanks very much for pointing out that powerful new functionality which
exactly solves my problem. I just quickly checked the release announcements
that Bill sent to this list, and I couldn't find anything related to this
new functionality. 'cmake --help-full' version 2.4.3 does not document this
so it must have been introduced for either 2.4.4 or 2.4.5.
Of course, it is difficult to remember to mention everything new in a
hand-crafted release announcement, but I think it would be a nice idea for
the CMake developers to run a diff between results from old and new 'cmake
--help-full' commands and publish that diff as an automatic part of the
I just did that for 2.4.6 versus 2.4.3 (using diff --unified=20 to give lots
of context for changes), and the results show the _large_ number of
improvements that have been made to CMake since 2.4.3. OTOH, 2.4.6 versus
2.4.5 shows no changes to the documentation which indicates 2.4.6 must have
been mostly about bug fixing rather than new core features or new modules
(or new documentation).
