qtchooser - a wrapper used to select between Qt development binary versions
Qt is a cross-platform C++ application framework. Qt's primary feature
is its rich set of widgets that provide standard GUI functionality.
The Qt Chooser provides a wrapper to switch between versions of Qt
development binaries when multiple versions like 4 and 5 are installed
or local Qt builds are to be used.
It is commonly used via a symlink from an executable_name like qmake.
The options which apply to the
Lists available Qt versions from the configuration files
Prints environment information
Selects version as the Qt version to be used
Runs the selected tool.
If qtchooser has been built with QTCHOOSER_GLOBAL_DIR (predefined search
paths for qtchooser's configuration files, useful in some distros), setting this
variable will override its effect.
Same as -qt=version. If set, the selected configuration is used and binaries
symlinked to qtchooser will be executed without additional parameters.
Used as specified in
System-wide configuration files. Each has two lines, the first is the path
to the binaries and the second is the path to the Qt libraries. If a
default.conf is provided, the settings from it will be automatically
used in case nothing else is selected.
User configuration files.
