How does Qt build and use ICU?



  • I want to build ICU into one of my Qt projects. I've got a problem building ICU data module (icudt library). To make things easier, I wanted to see how Qt builds ICU for its own internal use, and hopefully steal the .pro file. However, I can't find neither sources nor even headers for ICU in the Qt src folder. How does Qt even use ICU?

    Hi,

    ICU is an external dependency.

    There's a couple of classes some internals that uses ICU, QLocale and QTimeZone for example

    Indeed, I forgot that "little" module :)
