Default Makefiles / CMAKE / Programming

Can anyone clarify what a Makefile is (Please in English). My understanding is that you create a makefile for any given compiler to tell it how to compile a third party library.


If this is the case then my understanding is that a Makefile can be created with CMAKE. If this is the case then where do I put the third party library when I do this (the PODOFO Library)? I'm currently trying to create a makefile for PODOFO (PDF Library) and its looking impossible at this stage. I have to use something called 'ZLIB' and something else called 'libjpeg' and include them somewhere to complete the makefile process. Besides the fact that despite an explanation for those libraries/ files or whatever they are can be found in Wikipedia, I'm failing to understand what they are or where they should go when trying to create a Makefile with CMAKE.

Is anyone able to clarify for me how this should all go together. Obviously this is a major floor in my understanding so if you can recommend any books on this kind of thing so I can make sense of this in the future then it would be most welcomed.

Thanks in advance.

Does anyone know anything about the above process? I'm honestly lost with this. Not even sure where to start?
