Specifies the build type on single-configuration generators (e.g.
Makefile Generators or
Ninja). Typical values include
MinSizeRel, but custom
build types can also be defined.
This variable is initialized by the first
enable_language() command called in a project when a new build
tree is first created. If the
variable is set, its value is used. Otherwise, a toolchain-specific
default is chosen when a language is enabled. The default value is often
an empty string, but this is usually not desirable and one of the other
standard build types is usually more appropriate.
Depending on the situation, the value of this variable may be treated case-sensitively or case-insensitively. See Build Configurations for discussion of this and other related topics.
For multi-config generators, see
