Free compiler for PocketPC

, posted: 26-Jul-2006 15:04

If you are like me and left wondering why Microsoft get away with charging top dollar for their compiler (and crappy IDE; Visual Studio) then rejoice at GCC for PPC!

Reading today, I saw the release announcment for cegcc - a cross compiler for Windows and Linux that creates Windows CE ARM PEs (pocket executables).

Be warned, CEGCC is still beta and probably only works with WinCE 4, but there is hope! We can develop Pocket PC applications without giving limbs to Microsoft, also by using pythonce and PHP speaks for itself.
