Question about CMAKE_MODULE_PATH

Steven Truppe
Hi everyone,


i try to load custom modules. i use


list(append CMAKE_MODULE_PATH "/mypathtomdoules")

and then i try to load the module with

include(mymodule)

but he can't find it. now i tried to output the content of
CMAKE_MODULE_PATH with the cmake_print_variable from the
CMakePrintHelpers module and the output of

cmake_print_variables(CMAKE_MODULE_PATH) is "" ...


what's going on here ?


best regards!

Doesn't the content of CMAKE_MODULE_PATH should also include the path to
the default modules ??

The default modules are automatically checked by CMake, independently
of the contents of CMAKE_MODULE_PATH. They should not normally be
present in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH.

The "append" argument should be uppercase:

list(APPEND CMAKE_MODULE_PATH "/mypathtomodules")

Did you receive any warnings about an invalid argument to list()?
