Hier ein Artikel als comp.os.linux.announce, vielleicht
von Interesse:

Hello, people.

First a little background:
In the middle of all that flamefest in comp.os.linux.advocacy about Qt, KDE, 
what is free software, and other things, somebody made a statement that
kinda made a little sense.

He said Qt (and then KDE) could never become a standard, because it didn't
support C. I replied that a C wrapper for Qt should possible to write in 
about a week. Well, a week has passed, and here is that wrapper :-)

QtC provides access from C to every public method of every widget in Qt, as 
well as to some other things.
The docs are a little unexistant, but most things can be deduced from the
excellent Qt docs.

I have uploaded the sources for this library to, and I suppose they will be moved soon to some 
adequate place.

The name of the file is QtC-0.0.2.tar.gz, and it is licensed under the GPL.
The license will be changed to LGPL for the next version.

A similar library providing access to the KDE libs will follow shortly.

Hope you like it. Enjoy!

Best regards.
