- The international software company
Klarälvdalens Datakonsult AB now launches the resource converter
Knut, a well-tested tool which helps moving from Windows to other
platforms like Unix/Linux.
It cuts down on porting time for applications enormously since
- Developers can use dialog boxes in the Windows version even on
the new platform.
- Change and adapt screen displays with the help of Knut and the
Qt GUI Designer in a previously unseen speed. The only requirement
is the usage of the cross-platform GUI toolkit Qt. (Qt is a
registered trademark of Trolltech AS.)
Knut eases the developer's burden in one of the most important
phases of software development: The design and implementation of
dialog boxes. Knut opens the existing program file and translates the
resources into a format that is understood by Qt GUI Designer.
Without any further intermediate steps, Knut reads the dialogs in a
Windows program file (.exe or .dll) directly, including bitmaps and
Knut is also a useful tool for programmers which work on several
platforms. They can continue to develop their dialog boxes on
Windows, even if the software should run on Linux/Unix as well.
Klarälvdalens Datakonsult AB, one of the leading companies in the
area of porting complex software solutions has originally developed
the resource converter Knut as an in-house tool and uses it regularly
A test version can be downloaded from
. Knut can be used without cost for
non-commercial, private purposes. Program support and commercial use
require purchasing a license.
