#40228 new enhancement

cmake: add FindLua52.cmake

Reported by: mojca (Mojca Miklavec) Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version:
Keywords: Cc: afb@…
Port: cmake wxLua


This needs to be reported upstream, but it might take a while before they do anything and release a new version. wxLua needs FindLua52.cmake in order to compile with external dependency (otherwise it can still use the built-in lua, but not the external one).

The upstream bug for this is and it looks like the implementation may be somewhat different. I would prefer to wait for the upstream 2.8.12 release.

That is, unless the generalized version-agnostic FindLua.cmake works with 2.8.11. Could one of you who uses Lua see if it does?

Waiting for 2.8.12 sounds perfectly fine (even though I have a hard time believing that this patch would be included in 2.8.12 given that RC3 is already out; if I was the developer I wouldn't dare changing the name of the module from RC3 to main release).

In any case fixing this in 2.8.11/12 only makes sense if the solution will be the same as in the to-be-released version. It's pointless to add one file now and realize that a completely different solution will be used in the released version.

Probably the main problem is that upstream software (like wxLua) expects the module to have a specific name (wxLua looks for FindLua52.cmake for example). I totally agree that it makes more sense to have version-agnostic FindLua.cmake rather than a separate module for each version. This FindLua52.cmake was just my quick-and-dirty solution to make the compilation work in the first place (lacking the experience to write a version-independent one).

Meanwhile I will try to open a ticket in the tracker for wxLua.
