Anyone familiar with Qt?


One of the reasons I am trying Linux was that I was trying to teach myself C++. Now I have Qt loaded and it can do C++, however, after you write the code, how do you compile.

In the past I used DevC++ on my windows desktop, so I am used to there being a compile button. I have tried looking around the site and tried going through the help files, but am really at a loss.

Go to http://doc.trolltech.com/4.0/tutorial-t1.html

In summary, go to the directory where your program is stored and type "qmake -project && qmake". This should get simple programs to compile. For more elaborate programs, you have to read about how to write a makefile. Though I have not yet started writing any programs, so the above may not work.

This thread is best suited in Programming forum.

Thanks for the link.....I was about to come back and apologize(before getting flamed )
Because I wen t to this silly little thing called tutorials and actually found something on it (insert sheepish grin here) But I still appreciate the link cause Qt looks really facinating, it reminds me of visual basic

A free Visual Basic alternative is Gambas. Realbasic is another alternative that is portable for Windows, Linux, and Mac, but it is a commercialized product.
