\title Adding Compilers
A \e {tool chain} specifies a compiler and other necessary
tools for building an application that is \l{glossary-development-target}
{targeted} for a particular platform. \QC automatically detects the tool
chains that are registered by your system or by \QSDK.
Qt is supported on a variety of 32-bit and 64-bit platforms, and can
usually be built on each platform with GCC, a vendor-supplied compiler, or
a third party compiler. In \QC, a \l{glossary-development-target}{target}
specifies the compiler and other necessary tools for building an
application for a particular platform.
You can add tool chains to build applications by using other compilers or
with different versions of the automatically detected compilers:
