Sharp Zaurus 5600

Hello, Do any of you have a Zaurus? Can Rebol be ported? Thanks, James

Yes I do, but only a 5500 version. In theory, yes. In practice, REBOL needs a surprising amount of memory to run, so that may be a limiting factor for PDAs for a year or two. Max made a similar reply in a thread about porting to Palm/OS Me, I'd love REBOL on a PDA, so if RT are cooking up any plans, the sooner the better for me, Sunanda.

I think we don't need to wait year or two. Curent MDA from T-Mobile sports e.g. 128MB RAM and 400MHz XScale CPU. That should be simply enough. In fact - if we start to think about porting to mobile devices in a year or two - it will be late. We have to think about it now, and have rebol/view available next year ;-) As for me, I regard mobile devices View ports much more important than some unix variants starting from Solaris, ending with BSD. My platform priority is as follws: - Windows, Linux, MacOSx, mobile devices/consoles ...... then nothing for a looong time, then maybe other platforms .... -pekr-

Hi Petr/Sunada/James, Well if we could have rebol view of a Linux Handheld like the Zaurus I would jump at buying one. Wonder how much Carl would charge to do a a port? (Probably too much for a few of us to club together and pay for it I would guess) Cheers Phil

A port is on the list. The Zaurus uses QT instead of X. Carl has signed up with QT to be a developer so I think he really intends to do it eventually... Enjoy!! ~~Ammon
