digitalmars.D.announce - D Compiler for Pocket PC Windows CE/Mobile

Hi,

A D compiler based on cegcc project is born for Windows CE platforms (It 
includes Pocket PC and Windows Mobile).
The compiler is based on a cegcc-4.1.0 and for now it's not really 
tested so I would be interested by some feedback.

D compiler is available here 
http://www.smartmobili.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=38&Itemid=41&lang=english
I only have compiled it under cygwin, the linux version will come soon.

Actually this compiler is part of a project called Gynoid and aiming at 
designing a new framework based on D language and targetting Windows CE, 
PSP, Symbian and Darwin OS.

How cool is that ? I will give it a try later, i am owning a Symbian driven mobile phone. It would be soo nice to code for it in D.

About Symbian D compiler it won't be available before next year because this platform use a very specific ARM ABI and recent GCC doesn't support it (at least from what I know). Before to be able to generate a D compiler, we will have to work on a C/C++ patch to GCC (seomething like an old patch done by an hungarian university : http://www.inf.u-szeged.hu/symbian-gcc/

The SWT project has a port for Windows CE on PocketPC. So if someone wants to start with the dwt-wince project... :)
