I'm not sure whether I understand your question correctly. The *.cc files
contain c++ code, like *.c files contain ansi c code.

i was used to see *.cpp files for the source code of c++ but now i saw
*.cc. which is the difference???
There is no difference.

Also seeing the bugzilla i saw that there is no much work for qt
programing for yast.Is that correct?

i looked at the bugzilla for bugs regarding yast and qt and i didn't find
much work to do.Is this correct or i looked in the wrong place?
You can find a list of current yast2-qt bugs here:

YCP is main language, other is more likely bindings

Now i am shocked!I knew that yast is a awesome/"strong" project but i never
thought that it would have it's own programming language..
That is sacinating :)

in this url,there isn't a link for openSUSE 11.4 or head for yast.why?
(Developer Documentation)

regarding the YCP language i found this link

YCP language is a scripting languare or not?
Yes, it's a scripting language.

Is there any IDE or something for the YCP language?
I don't know an IDE for YCP, most programmers use vi or emacs.

The qt developers use the qt assistant to manager their API,is there
something like this for yast?
YaST's API documentation is available here:

thanks :)
You are welcome!

Have fun!
