catkin check runtime dependency

asked 2013-11-07 02:57:58 -0500

Does this exist?

The use case is packages which provide cmake/xxx-extras.cmake files. An obvious example is the message_generation macros throwing a warning/error if you didn't run_depend on message_runtime, but there are similar cases where a build_depend package provides a macro which does something in a dependent package that will then need some other run_depend.

Are you referring to the following error message of catkin: ?

It uses the CMake variable ${PROJECT_NAME}_RUN_DEPENDS which is available after you invoked catkin_package() (or catkin_package_xml()). It provides all the keys for run_depend from the package.xml file.

Fantastic, that was just what I was looking for.
