What's the difference between Makefile.Debug and Makefile.Release

  • As we all know, qt will generate Makefile, Makefile.Debug and Makefile.Release files. These three files are generated both in debug and release mode. I know little about Makefile, but I found it's difference between Makefile.Debug in debug mode and the same file in release mode.
    Previously, I think I can make debug version if I use Makefile.Debug and make release version with Makefile.Release. Actually, I got release version using Makefile.Debug in release mode. I feel confused when I found the difference mentioned above. Does anyone know what the exact use to these three files? Maybe there are six files, because three files in debug mode and another three in release mode.
