Fix Version/s: None
I just installed a fresh version of vcpkg on W10.
Then I tried to install Xalan-c. The command I issued is
C:\where\vcpkg\is> .\vcpkg install xalan-c
This installs xerces and xalan-c libraries but leaves the Xalan.exe in the src subfolder of the vcpkg build structure.
I would have expected some way to install the executable in some appropriate place, either default or of my choice. Alas, I did not find anything in the vcpkg documentation that would help me in this regard.
What I found is that, in theory, you should be able to do
C:\where\vcpkg\is> .\vcpkg install xalan-c[tool]
i.e., using a "feature" that would allow you to tell vcpkg to "install" the executable in a more sensible place.
Please not that the while point for me was not to have to deal with Cmake and the build process.
I understand that this may be mostly a vcpkg issue, but maybe it is not, and it is something that has to do with the way xalan-c is "packaged" for vcpkg.
