digitalmars.D - D on Palm devices?

Has anyone tried to write a minimalistic Phobos
and used the gcc tool chain to write a Palm program?

Just wondering if SuperWaba(http://superwaba.com.br) could be ported to
D. SuperWaba currently uses a mix of Java(without reflections) and C.

The Java part should be fairly simple to translate.
Parts of the C part could be either reused or removed(e.g. the GC).

I've asked about the possibility of D on Palm in the past, specifically the possibility of porting gdc over to the gcc cross compiler. I know about superwaba and have played with it a little. I've never thought of using it with D. That's sounds like a interesting concept! I'll have to take a look a superwaba again. Later, John

My reccomendation is to take a look at the Ares project on dsource.org, and see if you like what's going on over there. If so, there may be room to consider different targets for the library. Granted, the library has a long way to go before it's mature, but it has some (proposed) qualities that may be good for palmtop implementations. FYI, the team just recently split out the GC from phobos, which would make such a porting job *much* easier. - Pragma

Ares is an excellent project. I really appreciate its goal. Once it matures a bit, it should be the first library for serious consideration for this kind of thing. -John

Hi, that sounds interesting. So, D now works without a GC or a replacement? Would be nice for OS programming not to fiddle around with the GC in the beginning. -- Robert M. Münch Management & IT Freelancer http://www.robertmuench.de
