I was going though a bunch of the presentations from Warpstock Europe 05 and came across mention that qt (http://warpstock.net/wse2005/presentations/presentations/) was ported to OS/2.

All it mentions there for availability is some stuff that dosnt help me (svn.netlabs.org/repos...) and that the source and binaries will be available 'later'.

Anyone know when 'later' is?

I would LOVE to actually do some OS/2 development - but I just can't suffer though the Open Watcom stuff (I tried, and it just felt, wrong - no offense to anyone who likes it), my VisualAge for C++ went MIA many years ago (ie: see stolen along with my 3 computers and software, although they left me my VisualAge for Java (but thats Java 1.1 and it is SLOW) - you know what, long story, never mind...), no decent C++ environment for Eclipse yet (and still no GUI editor, I'm spoiled by the Borland BuilderC++ *sigh*), and the Simplicity for Java stuff just wasn't cutting it.

So to say the least, I'm very damned excited to get a copy of Trolltechs QT running on my OS/2 box!

Hi!

qt for OS/2 is very easy to compile provided you have Innotek GCC installed and can download the source.

Note the source is available from ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/qt3/qt-os2-3.3.1-rc06.zip if you don't have the subversion client installed.

Cheers,

Paul.

How good is qt in OS/2? I tried the OS/2 port of wxWindows but unfortunately it's still not mature enough in OS/2 to do any real work with.

My impression at Warpstock was, that the OS/2 version of QT looks much more advanced than wxWidgets.

Thanks for the info... I've got the QT source downloading now, and will hit the Innotek website shortly.

Then, I just gotta figure out what to program.

I'm not much of a multimedia guy or driver programmer (which is where I think OS/2 is weakest)... I'm a definate data guy. So if anyone can think of some serial/TCP IP/database/etc program, I'll be open to suguestions... (once I figure out how to compile QT and get everything up and running).

Meh, maybe I'll just start by doing front ends for some of the great command line tools we have...

Hi there-

I tried to email you from here and I got a message back from Yahoo saying that that account doesn't exist. Could you email me at hausmaus@darktech.org - wanted to talk about VAC++.

Ungh, my bad... fixed my email address... apparently there IS a difference between .com and .ca .

I will email you tonight (but it will be a late email, I'm not home today) - or feel free try to email me again.
