       qmake - cross-platform makefile generator for Qt


       qmake [mode] [options] [files]


       QMake  has  two modes, one mode for generating project files based on some heuristics, and
       the other for generating makefiles. Normally you shouldn't need  to  specify  a  mode,  as
       makefile  generation  is the default mode for qmake, but you may use this to test qmake on
       an existing project.


              Put qmake into project file generation mode. In this mode qmake interprets files as
              files to be built, defaults to *.c; *.ui; *.y; *.l; *.ts; *.xlf; *.qrc; *.h; *.hpp;
              *.hh; *.hxx; *.H; *.cpp; *.cc; *.cxx; *.C.

              Put qmake into makefile generation mode (default). In this  mode  qmake  interprets
              files as project files to be processed, if skipped qmake will try to find a project
              file in your current working directory.
