In order to compile %OpenMesh, create a directory named e.g. "build" in
91
OpenMesh's root directory. <b>Change to the newly created directory</b> and type

<br/><br/>

You can choose the build type by using cmake with the flag<br>
<b>-DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=(Debug|Release)</b><br>
The default is: Debug

Other flags are:<br/>

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>
124
(Note: This is not mandatory since there are already VS2008 solution files included in %OpenMesh).<br><br>

<li> Extract %OpenMesh source code. </li>
130 131
<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>
132
<li> Start the cmake gui and open the %OpenMesh toplevel directory as source directory </li>
133 134
<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), Visual Studio 10(2010), Visual Studio 11 (2012), Visual Studio 12 (2013)  (Depending on your version) as
136
     generator. </li>
137
<li> Click generate to create the visual studio project files </li>
138
<li> You can now find a Visual Studio solution file (OpenMesh.sln) in the <b>build</b> directory you chose in cmake </li>
139
<li> Now you can build %OpenMesh from within Visual Studio using the newly created project file. </li>
140 141
</ul>

142
Note: Set the CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE variable to "Release" if you want %OpenMesh to be built as release.

In Visual Studio choose "Release" in the appropriate select box and build the solution afterwards.

We recommend you to use CMake >= 2.8 as build system. This can also easily be installed

157
via MacPorts as well as the Qt >= 4.7 library which is used for some example applications
158 159 160 161 162
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/>
163
<tt>
164
cmake&nbsp;..&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;## Generates the appropriate Makefiles<br>
165
</tt>
166 167 168 169
<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:
170 171
<br/><br/>
<tt>
172 173 174 175 176 177 178 179 180 181 182 183 184 185 186 187
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>
188 189 190
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.).
