Why cmake .. -GXcode does not generate makefile

I wrote a CMakeLists.txt file to compile a simple "hello word" example.

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.6)

#Declaration du projet

#declaration de l'executable

When I type cmake, It generates a makefile but when I use cmake .. -GXcode. I did not get a makefile. What is the problem?


I don't know CMake either, however I would have expected -GXcode to generate an Xcode project (a .xcodeproj "file").

Xcode doesn't use Makefiles.

It's -G Xcode, not -GXcode.

And the path should come after all the options, i.e.cmake -G whatever .. rather than cmake .. -G whatever.
