hi all,
    I am interested in qt webkit and want to read and debug its codes. I
follow the instructions in http://trac.webkit.org/wiki/BuildingQtOnLinux . I
get the source code by  git clone git://gitorious.org/webkit/webkit.git.
And I can compile it by Tools/Scripts/run-launcher --qt --debug. And follow
this post http://old.nabble.com/Debugging-Webkit--td29157328.html. I can
debug it with gdb. But I am familiar with programming in an IDE such as
eclipse/netbeans/visual studio/qt creator. How could I use any IDE to
compile and debug it?
    Another question. qt-webkit is a cross-platform browser. But the in
http://trac.webkit.org/wiki/BuildingQtOnWindows, it seems to build it in
windows,  we need Qt installed. And also this wiki don't need get latest
source code from git repository. Does that mean the windows version don't
catch up with the progress of webkit? e.g. I modified some codes after I
clone source codes from git. I can't make these modifications in windows? Or
I have to build a modified version of qt? Thanks!
