PyQt is a comprehensive set of Qt bindings for the Python programming language 
and supports the same platforms as Qt.  Like Qt, PyQt is available under the

PyQt is implemented as a set of 9 extension modules containing 300 classes and 
over 5,750 functions and methods.

PyQt also includes bindings to QScintilla, the port to Qt of the Scintilla

re-factoring tools, unit testing tools and integration with source code 
control systems).  eric3 is written entirely using PyQt and is available from
