Description: While browsing KDE Dot News the other day, I saw some Python software listed in the Recent Software section. It led me to four small applications by Doug Bell: ConvertAll, a unit conversion program; FlyWay, a route planner for pilots; rpCalc, a reverse polish calculator; and TreeLine, a simple tree structured information storage program. Written with Python and PyQt, they all looked sharp. The code was clean and easy to understand if not heavily commented. They were my favorite kind of small application to learn from. I called Doug to ask him about the programs. Turns out he isn't even a programmer by trade.
