PyQt4 supports Qt's resource system. This is a facility for embedding resources such as icons and translation files in an application. This makes the packaging and distribution of those resources much easier.
resource collection file is an XML file used to specify which
resource files are to be embedded. The application then refers to the resource
files by their original names but preceded by a colon.
For a full description, including the format of the
files, see the Qt
Resource System in the Qt documentation.

the resource files, and generates a Python module that only needs to be
ed by the application in order for those resources to be made
available just as if they were the original files.
In addition to the command line options that are common with rcc , the following are also supported:
Generate code that will work for all versions of Python v2.x. Although this is the default, the option should be specified explicitly in case the default is changed in a future version.
Generate code that will work for all versions of Python starting with Python v2.6.
pyrcc4 will only be included if your copy of Qt includes the XML 模块。
