CMake 3.X offers a ‘clean’ target.
cmake --build C:/foo/build/ --target clean
From the CMake docs for 3.0.2:
--clean-first = Build target 'clean' first, then build. (To clean only, use --target 'clean'.)
There is no
cmake clean in CMake version 2.X
I usually build the project in a single folder like “build”. So if I want to
make clean, I can just
rm -rf build.
The “build” folder in the same directory as the root “CMakeLists.txt” is usually a good choice. To build your project, you simply give cmake the location of the CMakeLists.txt as an argument. For example:
cd <location-of-cmakelists>/build && cmake ... (From @ComicSansMS)
