<h2><a name="abstract">Abstract</a></h2>
Abstract classes are used as base classes. You cannot create
an instance of an abstract class directly - you need to subclass
it. In the subclass, you need to overload <i>all</i> of the
class's <a href="#purevirtual">pure virtual</a> methods. These
are marked as "pure virtual" in these docs, and are also indicated
by a " = 0" at the end of the method declaration.
If your subclass doesn't overload the pure virtual methods in the
abstract base class, you won't be able to create an instance of it.
<h2><a name="purevirtual">pure virtual</a></h2>
Pure virtual methods are members of an <a href="#abstract">abstract</a>
class (they're what makes the class abstract in the first place). Pure
virtual methods are nothing more than place holders - there is no code
associated with them
<h2><a name="variables">variables</a></h2>
Class variables can be read and written from Python. Global or static
variables are <i>read only</i>. Variables that are "protected" or.
"private" in C++ are not implemented.
<h2><a name="slots">slots</a></h2>
When using TQt or KDE in C++, methods involving connections to slots
take 2 arguments: a TQObject 'receiver' and a char* 'slot' name. In Python
you only need to provide a single value - the name of a Python callable
method or function which will be connected to a signal. The method or
function does not need to be in the class where it is reference, and does
not have to be in a class at all. There are other options - see the
"Signals and Slots" documentation for more information.
