Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Not necessarily all at once, though perhaps someone in enough of a hurry could go through the 24 one-hour sessions back to back. Linux programmer and consultant Solin explains how to build graphical applications for Linux/Unix and Microsoft Windows; install the Qt library and write, compile, and run a program; program with KDE; and perform other tricks in object oriented programming. He does not take time for a bibliography. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
