Ninja

Generates build.ninja files.

A build.ninja file is generated into the build tree. Recent versions of the ninja program can build the project through the all target. An install target is also provided.

For each subdirectory sub/dir of the project, additional targets are generated:

sub/dir/all
Depends on all targets required by the subdirectory.
sub/dir/install
Runs the install step in the subdirectory, if any.
sub/dir/test
Runs the test step in the subdirectory, if any.
sub/dir/package
Runs the package step in the subdirectory, if any.

Fortran Support

The Ninja generator conditionally supports Fortran when the ninja tool has the required features. As of this version of CMake the needed features have not been integrated into upstream Ninja. Kitware maintains a branch of Ninja with the required features on github.com/Kitware/ninja.
