/** \page tutorial_build How to create your own project using OpenMesh

In this tutorial we will explain, how to create a new project using
%OpenMesh and build it with the CMake build system. We assume, that you have already
downloaded the %OpenMesh source files as well as installed the CMake build tools.

There are quite few steps to follow to successfully add your own application to the build tree:

\li Go to OpenMeshRoot/src/OpenMesh/Apps and create a new directory, say "MyOwnProject"
\li Now create a new file called "CMakeLists.txt" containing the following lines:

\include CMakeLists.txt

(Remember to replace "MyProjectName" with whatever you have chosen as your project's name.
Note: If you don't want to use *.hh and *.cc as your C++ source file suffices, you'll
have to change this, too, because CMake won't build your sources otherwise.

\li Create your source files as for example explained in the previous tutorial (\ref tutorial_01)
and save them in the same directory.

\li Add \code add_subdirectory (MyOwnProject) \endcode to OpenMeshRoot/src/OpenMesh/Apps/CMakeLists.txt (note: You can either
add this line right after the other projects or at the end of the file).

\li Create a directory called "build" in OpenMesh's root directory. Change to the newly created directory and call
\code cmake .. \endcode and \code make \endcode

That's all. Your project will now be built.
