    CMake help?

    Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any official forums for CMake, so I was wondering if it's okay to ask here? I would ask away but I don't want to seem ignorant. I'm trying to make a CMakeLists.txt for a library that doesn't have a very effective build method for VS2017, and thus took it upon myself to make my own. I intend to submit it as a port for GitHub - Microsoft/vcpkg: C++ Library Manager for Windows, Linux, and MacOS, too, which requires CMake be used to build C/C++ libs

    CMake has official mailing lists.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
