Opens a shell in the environment that a build with the specified parameters would use.

<directory> where build artifacts are stored.
The default value is the current directory unless
preferences.defaultBuildDirectory is set.
Relative paths will be interpreted relative to the current directory.
You can use the following special values as placeholders:
@projectis expanded to the name of the project file excluding the extension
@pathis expanded to the name of the directory containing the project file.
<file> as the project file. If
<file> is a directory and it contains a single file with the extension

release configuration names imply the respective build variant. A debug build contains additional debug symbols that are needed for debugging the application but that can be left out from the release version.

The build variant can also be specified explicitly by using the qbs.buildVariant property.
When naming configurations created for special purposes, follow the rules for legal names generally used in programming languages:
- The first character must be a letter (a-z), an underscore (_), or a dollar sign ($).
- Subsequent characters may be letters, digits, underscores, or dollar signs.
Property values set in project files or profiles can be overridden on the command line. The syntax is:
