    \inqmlmodule QbsModules
    \since Qbs 1.0

    \brief Provides C/C++ support.

    The \c cpp module contains the properties and rules for toolchains of the C/C++ family.
    On Apple platforms, this includes support for Objective-C/C++.

    \section2 Setting Up the Run Environment

    When running an application that has dependencies on dynamic libraries, the
    script specified by \l{Module::setupRunEnvironment}{Module.setupRunEnvironment}
    automatically adds the locations of the libraries to the environment.
    That is, to \c PATH on Windows, \c DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH on macOS,
    and \c LD_LIBRARY_PATH on Linux and other Unix platforms. If the value
    \c{"ignore-lib-dependencies"} shows up in the \c config array, this behavior
    is disabled. Users can set the value via the \l run command.

    \target dependency-parameters-cpp
    \section2 Dependency Parameters

    \table
    \header
        \li Parameter
        \li Type
        \li Since
        \li Default
        \li Description
    \row
        \li \c{link}
        \li \c{bool}
        \li 1.9
        \li undefined
        \li If \c{false}, the dependency will not be linked, even if
            it is a valid input for a linker rule. This property
            affects library dependencies only.
    \row
        \li \c{linkWholeArchive}
        \li \c{bool}
        \li 1.9
        \li undefined
        \li If \c{true}, then if the dependency is a static library, all of its objects
            will be pulled into target binary, even if their symbols do not appear to be used.
            This parameter is mainly useful when creating a dynamic library from static libraries.
    \row
        \li \c{symbolLinkMode}
        \li \c{string}
        \li 1.9
        \li undefined
        \li Attribute specifying how the library or framework will be linked.
            May contain the values: "weak", "lazy", "reexport", and "upward"; refer to the Apple
            ld64 man page for full details. \c{undefined} uses normal linking.
            Currently only applies when linking for Apple platforms.

    \section2 Relevant File Tags
    \target filetags-cpp

    \table
    \header
        \li Tag

        \li Since
        \li Description
    \row
        \li \c{"application"}
        \li n/a
        \li 1.0.1
        \li The rule that creates executable files (typically via a linker) attaches this tag
            to its output artifact.
    \row
        \li \c{"asm"}
        \li \c{*.s} (for GCC-like toolchains), \c{*.asm} (for MSVC)
        \li 1.1.0
        \li Source files with this tag serve as inputs to a rule invoking the toolchain's
            assembler. One object file is generated for each such file.
    \row
        \li \c{"asm_cpp"}
        \li \c{*.S}, \c{*.sx}
        \li 1.1.0
        \li Like \c{"asm"}, but for source files that need preprocessing. This tag only has an
            effect with GCC-like toolchains.
    \row
        \li \c{"c"}
        \li \c{*.c} (if \c combineCSources is not enabled)
        \li 1.0.1
        \li Source files with this tag serve as inputs to a rule invoking the toolchain's
            C compiler. One object file is generated for each such file.
    \row
        \li \c{"c.combine"}
        \li \c{*.c} (if \c combineCSources is enabled)
        \li 1.8
        \li Source files with this tag serve as inputs to a rule combining them into
            a single C file, which will then be compiled.
    \row
        \li \c{"cpp"}
        \li \c{*.C}, \c{*.cpp}, \c{*.cxx}, \c{*.c++}, \c{*.cc}
            (if \c combineCxxSources is not enabled)
        \li 1.0.1
        \li Source files with this tag serve as inputs to a rule invoking the toolchain's
            C++ compiler. One object file is generated for each such file.
    \row
        \li \c{"cpp.combine"}
        \li \c{*.C}, \c{*.cpp}, \c{*.cxx}, \c{*.c++}, \c{*.cc}
            (if \c combineCxxSources is enabled)
        \li 1.8
        \li Source files with this tag serve as inputs to a rule combining them into
            a single C++ file, which will then be compiled.
    \row
        \li \c{"c_pch_src"}, \c{"cpp_pch_src"}, \c{"objc_pch_src"}, \c{"objcpp_pch_src"}
        \li -
        \li 1.5
        \li Files with this tag will be turned into precompiled headers for C, C++, Objective-C
            and Objective-C++, respectively. There can be only one such file per product and
            language.
    \row
        \li \c{"dynamiclibrary"}
        \li n/a
        \li 1.0.1
        \li The rule that creates dynamic libraries (typically via a linker) attaches this tag
            to its output artifact.
    \row
        \li \c{"dynamiclibrary_import"}
        \li n/a
        \li 1.0.0
        \li This tag is used for import libraries of dynamic libraries.  For
            example, the MSVC linker rule creates a \c{dynamiclibrary_import}
            artifact \c{foo.lib} in addition to a \c{dynamiclibrary} artifact
            \c{foo.dll}.
    \row
        \li \c{"hpp"}
        \li \c{*.h}, \c{*.H}, \c{*.hpp}, \c{*.hxx}, \c{*.h++}
        \li 1.0.1
        \li This tag is used for header files (C, C++, Objective-C and Objective-C++). No rule
            in this module generates output artifacts from such files directly, but the compiler
            rule will have a dependency on all rules that create such files.
    \row
        \li \c{"linkerscript"}
        \li -
        \li 1.5.0
        \li This tag is used for \c ld linker scripts. You can provide such a file if you need
            to replace the default linker script.
            This file tag only has an effect with GCC-like toolchains. The linker needs to be
            \c{ld}-compatible.
    \row
        \li \c{"obj"}
        \li n/a
        \li 1.0.1
        \li The rule that creates object files (typically via a compiler) attaches this tag
            to its output artifacts. Such files are usually intermediate artifacts of the build
            process and rarely need to be referenced in project files.
    \row
        \li \c{"objc"}
        \li \c{*.m} (if \c combineObjcSources is not enabled)
        \li 1.1.0
        \li Source files with this tag serve as inputs to a rule invoking the toolchain's
            Objective-C compiler. One object file is generated for each such file.
    \row
        \li \c{"objc.combine"}
        \li \c{*.m} (if \c combineObjcSources is enabled)
        \li 1.8
        \li Source files with this tag serve as inputs to a rule combining them into
            a single Objective-C file, which will then be compiled.
    \row
        \li \c{"objcpp"}
        \li \c{*.mm} (if \c combineObjcxxSources is not enabled)
        \li 1.1.0
        \li Source files with this tag serve as inputs to a rule invoking the toolchain's
            Objective-C++ compiler. One object file is generated for each such file.
    \row
        \li \c{"objcpp.combine"}
        \li \c{*.mm} (if \c combineObjcxxSources is enabled)
        \li 1.8
        \li Source files with this tag serve as inputs to a rule combining them into
            a single Objective-C++ file, which will then be compiled.
    \row
        \li \c{"rc"}
        \li \c{*.rc}
        \li 1.1.0
        \li Files with this tag serve as inputs to the Windows resource compiler. One object file
            is generated for each such file. The tag has no effect on target platforms other than
            Windows.
    \row
        \li \c{"staticlibrary"}
        \li n/a
        \li 1.0.1
        \li The rule that creates static libraries (typically via a linker) attaches this tag
            to its output artifact.
    \row
        \li \c{"versionscript"}
        \li -
        \li 1.5.0
        \li This tag is used for \c ld linker scripts. You can provide such a file if you need
            fine-grained control over the symbols present in a shared library.
            This file tag only has an effect with GCC-like toolchains. The linker needs to be
            \c{ld}-compatible.

            indirectly via the compiler.
    \row

/*!
    \qmlproperty bool cpp::allowUnresolvedSymbols
    \since Qbs 1.2

    Set to \c true if you want the linking step to succeed even if the resulting
    binary contains unresolved symbols. Normally, this makes little sense, but
    in special cases it is possible that the respective symbols will be
    available at load time even if they are not present during linking.

    \nodefaultvalue
*/

/*!
    \qmlproperty string cpp::architecture

    The target architecture.

    \defaultvalue \l{qbs::architecture}{qbs.architecture}
*/

/*!
    \qmlproperty string cpp::endianness
    \since Qbs 1.9

    Specifies the endianness of the target platform's processor architecture
    (\c{"big"} or \c{"little"}).

    The value is automatically detected from the compiler's default values, but
    can also be manually set in order to select a specific endianness when
    targeting bi-endian architectures like MIPS and PowerPC.

    \defaultvalue Compiler default value.
*/

/*!
    \qmlproperty bool cpp::debugInformation

    Whether to generate debug information.

    \defaultvalue \l{qbs::debugInformation}{qbs.debugInformation}
*/

/*!
    \qmlproperty bool cpp::combineCSources
    \since Qbs 1.8

    Enabling this property on a \l{Product}{product} instructs the
    \l{FileTagger}{file tagger} to attach the tag \c{"c.combine"} to C sources,
    rather than \c{"c"}. As a result, all C sources of the product will be
    combined into a single file, which is then compiled.

    This can speed up initial compilation significantly, but is of course
    detrimental in the context of incremental builds. Also, perfectly legal code
    may fail to compile with this option due to the merging of translation
    units.

    To enable this property in a product that has sources that cannot be merged,
    put the sources into a dedicated \l{Group} and set their \l{Group::}
    {fileTags} property to \c{"c"}, overriding the file tagger.

    \note Module properties set on specific source files (that is, at the Group
    level) will not be taken into account when building the combined file. You
    either need to set these properties at the product level or prevent the
    respective files from getting combined via the mechanism described above.

    \defaultvalue \c false

/*!
    \qmlproperty bool cpp::discardUnusedData
    \since Qbs 1.10

    If this property is \c true, the linker will discard data from objects that
    it determines to be unused. With MSVC and on Apple platforms, the
    granularity is per symbol, elsewhere it is per section.

    \nodefaultvalue
*/

/*!
    \qmlproperty bool cpp::separateDebugInformation
    \since Qbs 1.4

    Whether to store debug information in an external file or bundle instead of
    within the binary.

    The type of files that will be generated when this property is \c{true} is
    dependent on the compiler and target platform:

    \list
        \li With MSVC, this property controls the generation of
            \c{.pdb} (Program Debug Database) files.
        \li On Apple platforms with GCC or Clang, this property controls the
            generation of \c{.dSYM} (DWARF Symbol) bundles or, if
            \l{cpp::}{dsymutilFlags} contains the \c{-f} or \c{--flat} flags,
            \c{.dwarf} symbol files.
        \li On other platforms with GCC or Clang (including Windows/MinGW), this
            property controls the generation of \c{.debug} symbol files.
    \endlist

    \defaultvalue \c{true} for MSVC and with GCC or Clang on Apple platforms,
    otherwise \c{false}.
*/

/*!
    \qmlproperty stringList cpp::defines

    A list of preprocessor macros that gets passed to the compiler.

    To set macro values, use the following syntax:

    On Darwin platforms, applications and loadable modules are also affected.

    By default, this property is left empty on all platforms unless the product
    is multiplexed over the \l{qbs::buildVariants}{qbs.buildVariants} property.
    In that case, for the debug variant of the product, the default value
    is \c{"d"} on Windows and \c{"_debug"} on Darwin platforms, such as macOS.
    On all other platforms and in release mode, the default value is \c [].

    For example, building a dynamic library called \c MyLib that is multiplexed
    over the \l{qbs::buildVariants}{qbs.buildVariants} property with MSVC will
    produce files called \c{MyLib.dll} (for the release version of the product)
    and \c{MyLibd.dll} (for the debug version).

    \defaultvalue Platform-specific.

    (\c WINAPI_FAMILY).

    This value is used when building Windows Store applications. For example,
    setting \l{cpp::}{windowsApiFamily} to \c{"pc"} and this property to
    \c{["phone"]} will allow you to create Windows Store applications that
    target all Universal Windows Platform device families (\c "Universal" apps).

    Possible values include: \c{"app"}, \c{"desktop"}, \c{"pc"}, \c{"phone"},
    \c{"server"}, and \c{"system"}, which are mapped to the corresponding set of
    possible \c WINAPI_PARTITION_* preprocessor defines in the Windows SDK.
