Porting GCC and Binutils to Windows CE
Anonymous Reader writes "Earlier this year, Vitaliy Pronkin, a young Russian programmer, launched a project to port the open source GCC C/C++ compiler and supporting tools (library, manager, linker, etc.) to Windows CE and the Pocket PC platform. The result, according to Pronkin, is that it is now possible to develop applications directly on a Pocket PC PDA using the standard C/C++ programming language. Specifically, source code written in eVC (MFC isn't supported yet) can be built and then executed directly on the Pocket PC (or other Windows CE device) without conversion or additional runtimes. To learn more about this interesting project, WindowsForDevices.com conducted an email interview with Vitaliy Pronkin regarding his GCC/binutils port to Pocket PC and Windows CE."
