CMake is used to control the software compilation process using simple
platform and compiler independent configuration files.
CMake generates native makefiles and workspaces that can be used in the compiler environment of your choice.
CMake is quite sophisticated: it is possible to support complex environments requiring system configuration, pre-processor generation, code generation, and template instantiation. Behavior of CMake on AIX has been changed in 3.14 to obey to AIX rules. See /opt/freeware/share/cmake-3.21/Modules/readme_aix.txt for more informations.
