Can multiple make commands be set in BUILD_COMMAND for ExternalProject_Add?

hce
Hi,

In ExternalProject_Add, "BUILD_COMMAND make" works fine, but I need to add multiple make commands. In Linux command line I can type "make && make extra", but how can I set following BUILD_COMMAND for multiple make commands, it just not working?

BUILD_COMMAND make && make extra
INSTALL_COMMAND make install && make extra-install

Thank you.

Kind regards,

Jupiter

What's wrong with?

BUILD_COMMAND make all extra
INSTALL_COMMAND make install extra-install

Michael' suggestion is a good one.

But ... to do the equivalent of "&&" in an ExternalProject_Add call,
simply repeat the COMMAND keyword:

Not this:

>> BUILD_COMMAND make && make extra
>> INSTALL_COMMAND make install && make extra-install

But this:

  BUILD_COMMAND make COMMAND make extra
  INSTALL_COMMAND make install COMMAND make extra-install


Also, if you're going to hard-code "make", use "$(MAKE)" instead so
that the parallel job specification given to the top-level make is
inherited by the child processes too:

  BUILD_COMMAND $(MAKE) COMMAND $(MAKE) extra
  INSTALL_COMMAND $(MAKE) install COMMAND $(MAKE) extra-install


HTH,
David
