Hi Roger:

Thanks for the suggestion.  I downloaded QT Creator and have it setup, but
if you have a tip or there is a tutorial somewhere on how to create a myth
project in it that would be appreciated.  I will likely take a guess at it
with the "new project" options or to poke around, but I thought I would
just ask.  Not sure if the qmake file comment was a hint.
