Description Radu B. Rusu 2011-05-05 20:00:33 UTC
We've been working on creating installer binaries for Eigen (Windows, MacOS, Linux) for the purpose of simplifying the life of PCL 1.0 potential users.

With that in mind, would it be possible to integrate (and possibly refine) the following patch into the next release of Eigen: ?

We've been using CPack to successfully generate binaries. We're currently hosting them at and, but maybe you want to host them on your web page too (after they are done?). If you need access to our virtual machines to help generate the binaries, we can help with that.

Thank you in advance!
