    Default Environment variables and qmake

    Is there a way to do a conditional compilation according to environment variables with qmake:

    I am trying to recreate the following:

    ifdef AMDAPPSDKROOT
    INC_DIRS = "$(AMDAPPSDKROOT)include"
    endif

    ifdev NVSDKCOMPUTE_ROOT
    INC_DIRS = "$(NVSDKCOMPUTE_ROOT)\OpenCL\common\inc"
    endif

    Also there is another problem

    Even though I have done this:
    INCLUDEPATH += "$NVSDKCOMPUTE_ROOT\OpenCL\common\inc"

    where NVSDKCOMPUTE_ROOT is "C:\ProgramData\NVIDIA Corporation\NVIDIA GPU Computing SDK 4.2"

    Even though I use double quotes, the gcc gets the path as separate words. Actually that part \NVIDIA Corporation\ is OK but the next: NVIDIA GPU Computing SDK 4.2 gets split into five words and causes errors. Why don't the double quotes work? My workaround was to copy these files to a folder without white spaces for now. Is this a bug or a feature.

    I would like my project file to compile on 3-4 different configurations: Linux 32/64bit, Windows 7 32/64 bit with NVIDIA SDK or AMD SDK respectively depending on the available hardware.

    Double quotes do not quote the whole path while being sent to gcc, they just make qmake treat it as a single token instead of splitting it into a list. It's best to explicitly escape all spaces, as far as I remember qmake has a function to do that (consult qmake manual).
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

    Please ask Qt related questions on the forum and not using private messages or visitor messages.

    Thanx! The function quote() did the trick. Although according to the documentation it is just a fancy way to put double quotes around a string.

    I still cannot figure out how to check if environment variables are defined.

    Have a look at qmake function reference. I guess you will find the answer contained in it :-)

    Qt Code:
    1. AMDAPPSDKROOT = $$(AMDAPPSDKROOT)
    2. !isEmpty(AMDAPPSDKROOT) {
    3. INC_DIRS = "$${AMDAPPSDKROOT}include"
    4. }
