List of variables that the :command:`try_compile` command source file signature
must propagate into the test project in order to target the same platform as
the host project.
This variable should not be set by project code. It is meant to be set by
CMake's platform information modules for the current toolchain, or by a
toolchain file when used with :variable:`CMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE`.
Variables meaningful to CMake, such as :variable:`CMAKE_<LANG>_FLAGS`, are
propagated automatically. The ``CMAKE_TRY_COMPILE_PLATFORM_VARIABLES``
variable may be set to pass custom variables meaningful to a toolchain file.
For example, a toolchain file may contain:
.. code-block:: cmake
# ... use MY_CUSTOM_VARIABLE ...
If a user passes ``-DMY_CUSTOM_VARIABLE=SomeValue`` to CMake then this
setting will be made visible to the toolchain file both for the main
project and for test projects generated by the :command:`try_compile`
command source file signature.
