List of options to pass to the compiler.

This property holds a semicolon-separated list of options specified so far for its target. Use the target_compile_options() command to append more options.

This property is initialized by the COMPILE_OPTIONS directory property when a target is created, and is used by the generators to set the options for the compiler.

Contents of COMPILE_OPTIONS may use “generator expressions” with the syntax $<...>. See the cmake-generator-expressions(7) manual for available expressions. See the cmake-buildsystem(7) manual for more on defining buildsystem properties.
