For XCode: use
For Visual Studio: use
On Unix platforms (including Linux, OSX, etc.) you can run
to generate Makefiles using GNU autotools, followed by

Generate build using CMake
CMake is cross-platform build generator. Pion required cmake version 2.8.10+
To generate build call
cmake <path to pion clone> [-G <generator name>] [-D<option>...]
for example to generate MSVS2012 Win64 solution run
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:splunk/pion.git cd pion/build cmake .. -G"Visual Studio 11 Win64"
this will create pion_solution.sln for MSVS2012/Win64
if cmake can't find dependency, use -D to control Find modules search behaviour
