For API / ABI compatibility reasons, it is recommended to build and use cpu_features in a subdirectory of your project or as an embedded dependency.
This is similar to the recommended usage of the googletest framework ( https://github.com/google/googletest/blob/master/googletest/README.md )
Build and use step-by-step
1- Download cpu_features and copy it in a sub-directory in your project. or add cpu_features as a git-submodule in your project
2- You can then use the cmake command
add_subdirectory() to include cpu_features directly and use the
cpu_features target in your project.
3- Add the
cpu_features target to the
target_link_libraries() section of your executable or of your library.
