Resource Compiler (rcc)

The rcc tool is used to embed resources into a Qt application during the build process. It works by generating a C++ source file containing data specified in a Qt resource (.qrc) file.


rcc [options] <inputs>
RCC accepts the following command line options:
-o Writes output to file rather than stdout.
-name name Creates an external initialization function with name.
-threshold level Specifies a threshold (in bytes) to use when compressing files. If the file is smaller than the threshold, it will not be compressed, independent of what the compression level is.
-compress level Compresses input files with the given level. Level is an integer from 1 to 9 - 1 being the fastest, producing the least compression; 9 being the slowest, producing the most compression.
-root path Prefixes the resource access path with root path.
-no-compress Disables all compression.
-binary Outputs a binary file for use as a dynamic resource.
-version Displays version information.
-help Displays usage information.
