I'm not the author of PyQt4, but from what I know and see, PyQt4 is
still more or less "for developrs" only and thus you should be able to
find the necessary information yourself by reading the source. PyQt4 has
not seen a release yet and only works on Windows since a few weeks. It's
in a beta state I think and thus documentation is not ready.

Now I don't know what documentation is available for PyQt3, but for
using PyQt4 you should only need the Qt4 docs and a closer look at the
already ported example. For the "tools" pyuic4, pyrcc and pylupdate4
calling them without parameters shows some help info, for anything else
you need to read the source.

I don't know what doc's you mean, but I guess quite some of them are
outdated. At least to some extent. Especially code examples should be
treated with care and you should look at the examples dir of PyQt4.


Accent on helpful side of your nature.  Drain the moat.
