    Cmake file dependancy

    I have a cmake project. It has a target which as part of the linker step requires an additional file to be embedded in the "executable". I know how to pass in the linker flags to include the file, but I can't figure out how to make cmake aware of the dependency and relink the target whenever that file changes. Any one know?
    It is too clear and so it is hard to see.

    Nope, that adds targets, not files.

    The last paragraph of that link mentions OBJECT_DEPENDS, which may be what you're looking for.

    I eventually found the target property LINK_DEPENDS does what I need.

    I'm guessing what you're seeking is something similar to Rust's include_bytes! macro?

    No. This is actually for an emscripten project, and the data is being stored as a virtual file system for a web browser.
