      Description

      The .pro file editor highlights some tokens (variables and functions) that are used by qmake.

      But some are missing.

      In https://codereview.qt-project.org/#/c/111643/1 I added the built-in qmake functions. This was more or less easy...

      However there are a lot of variables that are not known to the completer and in consequence to the highlighter....

      I greped every string of the source files of qmake and filtered out the ones that are already present in the completer (with the related patch taken as given ...) and strings that were clearly (at least to me) not relevant:

      if (
      foundLiteral.contains("$")
      || foundLiteral.contains(".")
      || foundLiteral.contains("+")
      || foundLiteral.contains("=")
      || foundLiteral.contains("#")
      || foundLiteral.contains(" ")
      || foundLiteral.contains("%")
      || foundLiteral.contains("{")
      || foundLiteral.contains("\\")
      || foundLiteral.contains("/")
      || foundLiteral.contains(",")
      || foundLiteral.contains("-")
      || foundLiteral.contains("|")
      || foundLiteral.contains(";")
      || foundLiteral.contains("(")
      || foundLiteral.contains("'")
      || foundLiteral.contains("!")
      || foundLiteral.contains("<")
      || foundLiteral.contains("?")
      || foundLiteral.contains("@")
      || foundLiteral.contains(":")
      ) 
      ...skip this string...
      

      This reduced the list to about 1000 strings. Some seem to be clearly reserved words of qmake generator outputs.

      But there are words in the list like:

      For a full listing please have a look at the attached list.

      Some of them are even documented in the qmake docs.

      Maybe someone like Oswald Buddenhagen could "run" over the list and make some check-marks of the ones, he thinks should be in.

      But I think at least the tokens that are documented should be in...
