cmakew help

usage: cmakew [-h] [-V] [--build-dir BUILD_DIR]
              [--action {cmake,recmake,clean,build,rebuild}]
              [--cmake-options CMAKE_OPTIONS] [--build-type {Debug,Release}]
              [--generator GENERATOR] [--debug | --quiet]

A CLI tool for CMake and compiler wrapper.

positional arguments:
  SOURCE_DIR_PATH       relative path to the source directory.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -V, --version         show program's version number and exit
  --debug               for debug print.
  --quiet               suppress execution log messages.

Directory Options:
  --build-dir BUILD_DIR
                        relative path to the build output directory (defaults
                        to 'build').

Build Options:
  --action {cmake,recmake,clean,build,rebuild}
                        cmake: execute CMake and exit. clean: delete existing
                        build directory and exit. recmake: delete existing
                        CMakeCache and execute CMake after that. build:
                        execute MSBuild to Visual Studio solution files that
                        created by cmake. rebuild: delete existing build
                        directory and execute CMake and MSBuild after that.
                        defaults to 'build'.

CMake Options:
  --cmake-options CMAKE_OPTIONS
                        path to the CMake options file. use "{key :value,
                        ...}" to set specific parameters. defaults to
  --build-type {Debug,Release}
                        defaults to Debug.
  --generator GENERATOR
                        generator that passes to cmake. the default value
                        decided by execution platform: (a) if executed at
                        Windows and Visual Studio is installed in C: or D:
                        drive, cmakew pass 'Visual Studio NN' as a generator
                        to cmake. (b) "Unix Makefiles" otherwise
