Qt is a large and fully featured UI development toolkit for C++ by Troll Software. A distinguishing feature of this toolkit is the completeness - it is as featured as MFC or Motif, also it is platform independent. Distributions exist for Windows and X11. Use of the library is free under X11 provided the software developed is not commercial software and if it is distributed it is free.
Also installed is tmake a tool for producing Makefiles for Qt projects. The current version of Qt installed on our system us 1.40. The most recent stable version 1.42, but in the interest of not messing people up we haven't switched yet.
In order to use the library you need to place some variable
