If you want to use cmake to build your Visual Studio 2008 solution file,<br>
download and install CMake from <a href="http://www.cmake.org/cmake/resources/software.html">www.cmake.org</a>.<br>
113
(Note: This is not mandatory since there are already VS2008 solution files included in %OpenMesh).<br><br>
114 115 116
<br>
<br>
<ul>
117
<li> Get Visual Studio 2008 </li>
118
<li> Extract %OpenMesh source code. </li>
119 120
<li> Get all required libraries and install them ( including headers! ).</li>
<li> Get cmake for windows from http://www.cmake.org/cmake/resources/software.html <li>
121
<li> Start the cmake gui and open the %OpenMesh toplevel directory as source directory </li>
122 123 124 125
<li> Choose a build directory (e.g. create a directory called "build" in OpenMesh's root folder) </li>
<li> Click on configure .... If any libraries are left unconfigured, you can adjust the path manually. Rerun configure until everything is configured correctly.
     Attention: Some build variables are only visible in advanced view mode. Select Visual Studio 9 2008 as
     generator. </li>
126
<li> Click generate to create the visual studio project files </li>
127
<li> You can now find a Visual Studio solution file (OpenMesh.sln) in the <b>build</b> directory you chose in cmake </li>
128
<li> Now you can build %OpenMesh from within Visual Studio using the newly created project file. </li>
129 130
</ul>

131
Note: Set the CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE variable to "Release" if you want %OpenMesh to be built as release.
132 133
In Visual Studio 2008 choose "Release" in the appropriate select box and build the solution afterwards.

Download and install required libraries as stated above.
140 141 142 143 144 145 146 147 148 149 150 151
You can download %OpenMesh's sources from <tt>www.openmesh.org</tt> or check out the latest repository via SVN:<br/>
<tt>svn co http://www.openmesh.org/svnrepo/OpenMesh/trunk %OpenMesh</tt>.<br/><br/>

\subsection mac_using_cmake Compiling OpenMesh using CMake

We recommend you to use CMake >= 2.8 as build system. This can also easily be installed
via MacPorts as well as the Qt >= 4.6 library which is used for some example applications
in %OpenMesh.<br/>
Once installed, change to %OpenMesh's root directory and create a directory
named e.g. "buildDebug" (assuming you want to build with debug symbols).<br/>
Then type in the following command to initially set up the build environment:
<br/><br/>
152
<tt>
153
cmake&nbsp;..&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;## Generates the appropriate Makefiles<br>
154
</tt>
155 156 157 158
<br/>
Note: If the build directory is not a subdirectory of %OpenMesh's root folder, replace ".." with %OpenMesh's
absolute (or relative) path.
In order to manually set specific build variables, just type:
159 160
<br/><br/>
<tt>
161 162 163 164 165 166 167 168 169 170 171 172 173 174 175 176
ccmake&nbsp;.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;## Configure build environment<br>
</tt>
<br/>
This opens the CMake configure tool. Change the CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE variable to "Release" in order to prepare build
for release configuration. Now, when everything is set up, just type:
<br/><br/>
<tt>
make&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;## Build %OpenMesh<br>
</tt>
<br/>
And optionally:
<br/><br/>
<tt>
make&nbsp;doc&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;## Build %OpenMesh's documentation<br>
</tt>
<br>
177 178 179
The mac application bundle will be found under "Build" in the recently created build folder. 
It automatically contains all needed shared objects (libs, fonts, textures, etc.).
