Subject Re: Proposal: get rid of automake build system.
Date Mon, 11 Mar 2013 15:53:01 GMT
There are build instructions for linux and windows  in the top-level 
README, but the cmake line only differs from what you are doing in 
its install prefix:

  cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr ..





----- Original Message -----
So... apologies if I am missing them, but are there instructions as to
how to build the C++ codebase using cmake?

My experience with proton was that

mkdir build ; cd build ; cmake .. ; make

Would work... But that fails to compile with the C++ broker on my system.
