Further below the doc says: "The position of the property assignment is important. In the example above, the profile property is set for all build configurations that come afterwards.”
So my questions are:
- Is profile:xxx a property assignment or something special and should it come before the config:xxx parameters of after?
It's a special property for the command line, like "config". Whether or not you put it before or after the "config" value makes a difference only when building for several configurations at once, as explained in the documentation you quoted above.
- What means “debug” (qbs.io<http://qbs.io><http://qbs.io>) compared to “config:debug” (cmd help), which is right, which is outdated?
config:debug is right.
For my configuration, it does not work if config:debug comes before the profile, but i do not have any default profile set.
You'll need to clarify what you mean by that.
> qbs config:release profile:xxx
just works. but when i try to build both configurations
> qbs config:debug config:release profile:xxx
it fails with errors for configuration "release" (can’t resolve module “cpp”, “Qt.core” etc.), whereas
> qbs config:release config:debug profile:xxx
fails for “debug”. It seems the second config is not associated with the profile.
> qbs profile:xxx config:debug config:release
works for me. Maybe the latter does not do what i expect.
