Usage: 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

       -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; *.h;
*.hpp; *.hh; *.H; *.hxx; *.cpp; *.cc; *.cxx; *.C
       -makefile      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
