There is a book, Effective STL, and an online paper, "What every programmer 
needs to know about memory". I don't think that it's the job of the Qt docs to 
explain "what every programmer needs to know about memory", because it is not 
specific to Qt.

The Qt documentation also doesn't give many details on Unicode. It's assumed 
that people using it know the basics.

You will also not find in the Qt docs that signed integer overflow is undefined 

The Qt docs are not a CS text book :)
