New in version 3.8.

This property is supported only when <LANG> is C or CXX.

Specify a semicolon-separated list containing a command line for the cpplint style checker. The Makefile Generators and the Ninja generator will run cpplint along with the compiler and report any problems.

This property is initialized by the value of the CMAKE_<LANG>_CPPLINT variable if it is set when a target is created.

New in version 3.27: This property supports generator expressions.

New in version 3.27: SKIP_LINTING can be set on individual source files to exclude them from the linting tools defined by <LANG>_CPPLINT, <LANG>_CLANG_TIDY, <LANG>_CPPCHECK, and <LANG>_INCLUDE_WHAT_YOU_USE. When SKIP_LINTING is set to true on a source file, those tools will not be run on that specific file.
