    Question How to specify qmake-generated target in a platform independent way

    qmake's TARGET variable is used to specify base name of the generated target. But the final filename is composed by qmake depending on the host OS rules.

    Regarding

    Qt Code:
    1. TEMPLATE = lib
    2. TARGET = test
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    it turns out to be test.dll and libtest.so for Windows and Linux respectively.

    When setting up installation rules, I'd like to refer the target by its final filename rather then messing up the configuration with platform prefixes like win32 or unix.

    Qt Code:
    1. target.path = $$DEPLOY_DIR
    2. target.files = <target filename here>
    3. INSTALLS += target
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    There's the same named TARGET variable in generated Makefile, but it is impossible to use it directly in target.files.

    Default Re: How to specify qmake-generated target in a platform independent way

    With TARGET you don't need to set target.files -- it will be filled by qmake automatically.
    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.
