\title Examples

Qt ships with lots of small and some medium-sized example programs
that teach you how to implement various tasks with Qt. Most of them will show how to
use a certain class or module, others aim at programming techniques
and Qt basics, and some of them simply want to show you what's possible.

Note that most of the examples assume that you have some experience with C++ 
and Qt and therefore are not commented extensively. If you are interested
in a line-by-line coverage please refer to the tutorials 
\link tutorial.html Tutorial #1\endlink, and 
\link tutorial2.html Tutorial #2\endlink, and also the
\link step-by-step-examples.html step-by-step examples \endlink.

programmers and try to make learning Qt as painless as possible.

*/

/*! \defgroup tools

\title Non-GUI Classes

The non-GUI classes are general-purpose collection and string classes
that may be used independently of the GUI classes.

In particular, these classes do not depend on QApplication at all,
and so can be used in non-GUI programs.

See also the \link collection.html introduction to the Qt collection
classes. \endlink 

*/

/*! \defgroup io

\title Input/Output and Networking 

These classes are used to handle input and output to and from external
devices, processes, files etc. as well as manipulating files and directories.

*/

/*! \defgroup basic

\title Basic Widgets

These basic controls (widgets) are designed for direct use.  There are
also some \link abstractwidgets.html abstract widget classes, \endlink
designed for subclassing, and some \link advanced.html more complex
widgets. \endlink

*/

/*! \defgroup advanced

\title Advanced Widgets

These classes provide more complex user interface controls (widgets).

/*! \defgroup shared

\title Implicitly and Explicitly Shared Classes

These classes are normally-heavy classes which in Qt have been
optimized by the use of reference counter and common data so they can

be passed around as arguments efficiently, even though they may
seem heavyweight.

\title Help System

\keyword help system

These classes provide for all forms of online-help in your application,
with three levels of detail:

\list 1
    \i Tool Tips and Status Bar message - flyweight help, extremely brief,
	entirely integrated in the user interface, requiring little
	or no user interaction to invoke.
    \i What's This? - lightweight, but can be
	a three-paragraph explanation.
    \i Online Help - can encompass any amount of information,
	but is typically slower to call up, somewhat separated
	from the user's work, and often users feel that using online
	help is a digression from their real task.
