"""When cross compiling with CMake, the CMake introspection process may involve
"try_run" calls where an executable in run on the target system to learn some
information about the target system. Since we are cross compiling, attempting
to run the executable on the host is not possible or informative.
As a result, the initial CMake configuration on the host system will fail, but
it will create a file called TryRunResults.cmake that contains entries that
must result from the target system. These entries can be found by running a
CMake configuration on the target system, and examining the CMakeCache.txt
that result. The variables can then be passed to CMake using the -C flag.
For more information, see http://www.cmake.org/Wiki/CMake_Cross_Compiling.
The purpose of this script is to automate the population of the
TryRunResults.cmake with the content of the target CMakeCache.txt.
Usage: ./CMakeCacheToTryRun.py \
InputTryRunResults.cmake CMakeCache.txt OutputTryRunResults.cmake
