Description

I tried to open the "hangman" example stand-alone within the qt-creator IDE (CMakeLists.txt). This failed.

After this, I've tried to open the whole Examples tree. This failed, too.

I opened it finally as "new project", importing the sources, just to be able to look at the code within the ide (no compilation).

A possible feature would be:

- Ideally: each example should work (build, run) for itself.

  • Alternatively: the example-tree should work for itself.

This could become difficult, and involve the CMAKE build-system. But having the source-codes modular and reusable (and not monolithic and coupled), especially the examples, has several benefits which could be worth the effort.

Test Case

- using qt-creator to open (via CMakeLists.txt) an example or the whole example tree.
