Build automation

You can invoke CMake from your file and automate the build of your library/project. Conan provides a CMake() helper. This helper is useful to call cmake command both for creating conan packages or automating your project build with the conan build . command. The CMake() helper will take into account your settings to automatically set definitions and a generator according to your compiler, build_type, etc.
