Useful CMake cache variables

Cache variables are passed as options to CMake using -D...

CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE

CMake build type.

For production builds with -O3 optimisation enabled, use -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release.

For debugging builds with -O2 optimisation and debug symbols enabled, use -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo.

For builds using CUDA device emulation, use -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=DeviceEmu.

CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH

Path to third-party libraries, e.g. -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=$HOME/usr.

This variable is only needed if libraries are installed in non-standard paths.

HALMD_USE_STATIC_LIBS
Compile separate, statically linked executable for each backend.
Boost_USE_STATIC_LIBS

Link to Boost libraries statically.

Recommended value is -DBoost_USE_STATIC_LIBS=TRUE.

HDF5_USE_STATIC_LIBS

Link to HDF5 libraries statically.

Recommended value is -DHDF5_USE_STATIC_LIBS=TRUE.

LUA_USE_STATIC_LIBS

Link to Lua libraries statically.

Recommended value is -DLUA_USE_STATIC_LIBS=TRUE.

HALMD_WITH_GPU

Forcibly enable or disable GPU support.

By default, GPU support is enabled or disabled depending on whether CUDA is available. If HALMD_WITH_GPU is explicitly set to TRUE, CMake will fail if CUDA is not available. If HALMD_WITH_GPU is explicitly set to FALSE, GPU support will be disabled even if CUDA is available.

HALMD_POTENTIALS
Semicolon-separated list of potential modules that shall be instantiated. By default, all available potentials are enabled.
HALMD_VARIANT_FORCE_DSFUN

Use double-single precision functions in force summation (GPU backend only).

Default value is TRUE.

HALMD_VARIANT_HILBERT_ALT_3D

Use alternative vertex rules for the 3D Hilbert curve used for particle ordering (GPU backend only).

Default value is FALSE.

HALMD_VARIANT_HOST_SINGLE_PRECISION

Use single-precision math in host implementation (host backend only).

Default value is FALSE.

This option requires SSE, which is enabled by default on x86_64.

HALMD_VARIANT_VERLET_DSFUN

Use double-single precision functions in Verlet integrator (GPU backend only).

Default value is TRUE.
