Whether to create a position-independent target
The ``POSITION_INDEPENDENT_CODE`` property determines whether position
independent executables or shared libraries will be created. This
property is ``True`` by default for ``SHARED`` and ``MODULE`` library
targets and ``False`` otherwise. This property is initialized by the value
of the :variable:`CMAKE_POSITION_INDEPENDENT_CODE` variable if it is set
when a target is created.
.. note::
For executable targets, the link step is controlled by the :policy:`CMP0083`
policy and the :module:`CheckPIESupported` module.
