I am working on a project which require me to build and compile MariaDB database. To build MariaDB, CMake is required. CMake will first verify on which operating system, it is being run, then it will create and\or copy the appropriate directories, files on the operating system.
It is an open source software under the BSD-3-Clause license. C++ compiler is required to run CMake build system. CMake is used in the software development industry for build automation, testing, packaging and installation of software.
CMake is not a build system, it creates the build system files for other operating systems, which includes support for directory hierarchy.
Let's install CMake on windows.

At this time, the current version is 3.26.0
Step 1 Double click on the downloaded executable file
