Disallow use of the LOCATION property for build targets.
CMake 2.8.12 and lower allowed reading the
property (and configuration-specific variants) to
determine the eventual location of build targets. This relies on the
assumption that all necessary information is available at
configure-time to determine the final location and filename of the
target. However, this property is not fully determined until later at
generate-time. At generate time, the
expression can be used to determine the eventual
LOCATION of a target
Code which reads the
LOCATION target property can be ported to
$<TARGET_FILE> generator expression together with the
file(GENERATE) subcommand to generate a file containing
the target location.
OLD behavior for this policy is to allow reading the
properties from build-targets. The
NEW behavior for this policy is to
not to allow reading the
LOCATION properties from build-targets.
OLD behavior of a policy is
deprecated by definition
and may be removed in a future version of CMake.
