[solved] Does -developer-build affect binary artifacts?

  • Greeting all

    In help output of configure script it says -developer-build option, compiles and links Qt with Qt developer options including. Does it affect exported symbols in libraries? I wonder if a developer-build is slower or not. And how much size overhead will added to libs.

  • Moderators

    It does export additional symbols. I have not benchmarked performance or measured the differences, but there sure might be some, especially in debug libs. I don't think release libraries are affected, but in any case, you can always compile with -release and without -developer-build to get only release libs.

  • Only releases are important in my case. I will do a test compile to see differences.
