Additional flags to be added when compiling this source file.

The COMPILE_FLAGS property, managed as a string, sets additional compiler flags used that will be added to the list of compile flags when this source file builds. The flags will be added after target-wide flags (except in some cases not supported by the Visual Studio 9 2008 generator).

Use COMPILE_DEFINITIONS to pass additional preprocessor definitions.

Contents of COMPILE_FLAGS may use "generator expressions" with the syntax $<...>. See the cmake-generator-expressions(7) manual for available expressions. However, Xcode does not support per-config per-source settings, so expressions that depend on the build configuration are not allowed with that generator.


This property has been superseded by the COMPILE_OPTIONS property.
