Get a global property of the CMake instance.

get_cmake_property(<var> <property>)

Gets a global property from the CMake instance. The value of the <property> is stored in the variable <var>. If the property is not found, <var> will be set to NOTFOUND. See the cmake-properties(7) manual for available properties.

See also the get_property() command GLOBAL option.

In addition to global properties, this command (for historical reasons) also supports the VARIABLES and MACROS directory properties. It also supports a special COMPONENTS global property that lists the components given to the install() command.
