What is the syntax of ‘INCPATH’ in Qt Makefile?



  • This is a simple question. Like below INCPATH of my Makefile, why there is '-I.' there? And why several '-I. -I.' are put there together? What does this mean?

    INCPATH = -I/targets/FREMANTLE_ARMEL/usr/share/qt4/mkspecs/linux-g++-maemo5 -I. -I/targets/FREMANTLE_ARMEL/usr/include/QtCore -I/targets/FREMANTLE_ARMEL/usr/include/QtGui -I/targets/FREMANTLE_ARMEL/usr/include -I. -I.

    Thank you!



  • INCPATH defines the path oh Header files to be included in the Environment

    -I means i don't know, i m windows programmer

    Thank you! pushpendrak

    I know the original meaning of '-I' like you mentioned. But I don't know the meaning of '-I. -I.' or why '-I.' is repeated so many times.

    As for '-I.' itself, I guess it means 'include the current path', am I right?



  • Makefile generated from .pro-file takes includepaths, librarypaths and other settings from different places (your .pro, maybe included .pro or .pri, makespecs and so on) and it can be dublicated across this different sources.

    Thank you! Denis

    Now I have better understanding of INCPATH. But could you please describe a little bit more about the details? I still cannot understand why '-I. -I.' exists. Please forgive my stupid, I am a newbie.



  • Maybe you just have .pro file with
    @
    INCLUDEPAH += .
    ........
    include(someprifile.pri)
    @
    and have someprifile.pri with
    @
    INCLUDEPAH += .
    @

    Or second "." is included from some else place.



  • i have gone through it and googled, i found out that this -I. indicate the current directory of project.

    Your opinion is right. I tried to remove some duplicated '-I.' and still I can compile to the same result. That means the duplicated '-I.' is not necessary and could be generated by the qmake process.

    Also thanks to those who provided your idea here!
