    Default How to create directories??

    Hi.

    My application needs some subfolders to put logfiles ecc...

    Is there a way to create the folders by some functions in the code or I have to create them by mean of the MakeFile?If yes what I've to add to the makefile generated with qmake.I tried with something like:

    createDir: $(CHK_DIR_EXISTS) directoryName
    $(MKDIR) directoryName

    but it doesn't work.I supposed it's totally wrong so anyone could help me?Thanks a lot.

    Try QDir::mkdir() or QDir::mkpath().

    It should be:
    Qt Code:
    1. directoryName:
    2. $(MKDIR) directoryName
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    You also have to add "directoryName" somewhere as a dependency. Like:
    Qt Code:
    1. all: ... directoryName ...
    2. ...
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    But remember that qmake will overwrite your Makefile.
