PREFACE:

Preface

This book is a guide to writing applications for Linux, Microsoft NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows 95, and Windows 98, using the Qt software toolkit from Trolltech AS. As any respectable programming guide should, it provides a working knowledge of the Qt software distribution and the objects, widgets, and conveniences that the Qt toolkit provides. In addition, it explores some aspects of Qt programming for enterprise application development that are not obvious from the toolkit vendor's documentation.

Audience

This book is for C++ programmers and students that want to write effective application software using the Qt toolkit. The focus is primarily on platform-independent software, but some platform-specific topics are unavoidably covered.

Assumptions

This book is not a reference manual for the Qt objects and widgets—Trolltech has done an excellent job of providing reference documentation in HTML and Adobe Postscript formats. Their documentation is included with both the Qt-Free edition and the

Qt-Professional edition licenses, and is available from the Troll web site. ...
