Name already in use

A tag already exists with the provided branch name. Many Git commands accept both tag and branch names, so creating this branch may cause unexpected behavior. Are you sure you want to create this branch?

Building Verdict

To build with CMake

  1. Set up a build directory
  2. Change to this directory
  3. Type ccmake /path/to/verdict but replace /path/to/verdict with the path to the directory containing this read-me file.
  4. Fill the required fields and press the 'c' key NB: This process is iterative; you may need to change values and reconfigure before continuing.
  5. When the 'g' option becomes available, press the 'g' key to generate the Makefile and exit CMake.
  6. Build with make
  7. Install with make install

Using Verdict

If you do not already have verdict installed on your system, see below for instructions to compile it.

Once you have verdict installed, you may use it in your own project by adding


to your CMakeLists.txt file.

Now you can link your executable to the verdict library. Assume you have an executable named example; verdict uses CMake's namespace feature, so you should link to the verdict library like so:


Note that executables do not need to specify PUBLIC, PRIVATE, or INTERFACE linkage, but libraries must so that transitive dependencies can be resolved by cmake.

verdict.h is the only header file you need to include.
