PathProbe

Detailed Description

On Windows, searches for library files within directories specified by the PATH environment variable.

On Unix, searches for library files within directories specified by the LIBRARY_PATH environment variable, as well as in "/usr/lib" and "/usr/local/lib".

On Linux, also searches in platform-specific directories, such as "/usr/lib64" and "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu".

For example, LibraryProbe can be used to search for a zlib library as follows:

import qbs.Probes

CppApplication {
    Probes.LibraryProbe {
        id: zlibProbe
        names: "z"
    }
    cpp.libraryPaths: zlibProbe.found ? [zlibProbe.path] : []
    cpp.dynamicLibraries: zlibProbe.found ? [zlibProbe.names] : []
    files: 'main.cpp'
}
