CMake has lots of good [http://www.cmake.org/documentation/ documentation], but when learning a new feature (or just starting out), there is no substitute for trying it out in isolation.
That way, if anything goes wrong, you have fewer lines of CMakeList.txt to look through for problems.

This page has moved [https://gitlab.kitware.com/cmake/community/wikis/doc/cmake/MinimalExamples here].
add_executable(hello hello.c)
