Description:

This is my first serious program written with Qt 4.X.To be honest, it`s my first serious project at all :).

Piq is just little application which can display quick information about Your adresses (internal LAN IP, broadcast or mac).Program scans Your host for all possible network interfaces, so You don`t have to type anything. Piq works in system tray, You can close its window and it will be still running. Moreover it can show Your public IP if You are NAT-user or something similar. This feature is very useful if You are some net-gamer and there are a bunch of line edits to quickly and easy copying necessary data.
Of course there are plenty of application which can the same thing but I`m almost sure that Piq is smallest, fastest ang most light :)

I`ve almost forgotten. My project-motto: "It is good to have an ace up one`s sleeve. An ace like a Piq .."
Just have fun to use it, read and modifying source code.

HOW TO COMPILE & RUN:
1. If you already got *.pro file just type:
Quote:
make

Make sure that there is the *.PRO file in Your source code directory. Later You just click on binary file or type:
Quote:
./binaryfile

where "binaryfile" is the name of compiled program.
2. I you don`t have the *.pro file or something failed make sure You already have installed Qt libraries. Then type this (everything in Your Source code directory):
Quote:
qmake - project

On Debian/Ubuntu type:
Quote:
qmake-qt4 -project

Then:
Quote:
qmake *.pro
press Tab and Enter
At the end type this:
Quote:
make


Binary, compiled package and some debs for Debian and Ubuntu are comming soon.
PS: I would like to apologise for my English, I know it isn`t the best one.

Nice tool, but I have some suggestions:

I got "0" as name of the executable. I don't think this is ok.

lo should'nt be the default device in the drop down list. ethX would be more usefull.
a copy-to-clipboard button would be nice.

Thanks for Your feedback. To fix this strange "0" we have to add this line to *.pro file:
TARGET = piq
where "piq" is the name of executable program. Just qmake was trying to build program called "0.3" like a name of directory but it truncated the name after dot mark (I don`t know why). What about other problems ? Hmm I am working about it and yes clipboard should be supported :)

I think that only bad thing in this program is only the name.
This tool is useful really, but may be will have conflicts with the name.

Ok I`ve realized that I have been working on code but not at the most important thing: name of application. It is my fault that I didn`t check even in Google for this application ( what a shame...). I don`t know what exactly which name I will chose but I have to change this one. Maybe reverse the letters ? Just piQ instead Qip. This one even sounds funny just try to pronounce it :P I as far as I can see it will be unique (i guess). If you have some ideas just write here :)
Btw thanks for Your nice comments I`m glad that my program will help someone.

just want to let you know that there is
already an instant messanger that is
named "QIP".

http://www.google.com/search?q=qip

due to this conflict it might be harder
for your possible users to find your
software.
