C++ build system for Linux
« on: June 18, 2018, 09:56:28 am »
Can anyone recommend a build system for a C++ project on Linux.  We'll be running CentOS Linux inside vmware on Windows 7 and building for embedded Linux on an ARM target.  For testing, we want to build for a CentOS target too.  It doesn't have to be free and it can't be slickedit as no-one else uses slickedit here.

We use CMake ( around here. Fairly steep learning curve but nowhere near as bad as automake  :)

You're right about the steep learning curve. Took ages to get the hang of it, but once you do it's fine.
