I have an old open source QT 4.x project and a .patch file to update it to the latest 5.4 QT. How do I run this patch? Could you provide an example if necessary?
Through QT Creator?
Hi and welcome to devnet
In general patches are nothing specific to Qt. I would expect that you shall find some information on the platform for the opensource project.
Also patches for specific versions are part of a versioning system such as Git or SVN. You should find information in their fora on how to apply a patch.
Qt creator supports a number of versioning control system including the aforementioned Git and SVN. However, you need to share more details that anybody may help out of this forum.
