FiveTech Software brings Clipper development for Pocket PC with FiveWin
Posted on 7-Jul-2005 19:38. | Tags Filed under: News.

FiveWin Pocket PC (FWPPC) is a library for the Harbour compiler which allows developers to create Pocket PC 32 bit applications for Microsoft Windows Mobile Pocket PC and SmartPhone.

The software provides a set of commands, classes and functions developed with the objective to bring together the the Microsoft Windows Mobile environment and Harbour, an open source Clipper language compatible compiler.

The software has been developed to keep the highest compatibility with the original FW Library for Clipper, though it is smaller and lighter to consume the minimum resources on the Pocket PC and SmartPhone devices.

This FWPPC release has been built using the Microsoft free Pocket PC C/C++ compiler in order to be used with Harbour also built with the same compiler.

With FWPPC developers get small, self contained 32 bit EXEs for Windows Mobile without requiring any external DLLs.

FiveTech includes the latest binaries of Harbour built using the Microsoft free Pocket PC C/C++ compiler (ARM compatible processors) with its FWPPC. The Microsoft compiler (clarm.exe) also includes the linker (link.exe), the librarian (lib.exe) and the resources compiler (rc.exe).

The company says that with FWPPC and the Microsoft compiler, developers have everything needed to create Pocket PC 32 bit applications. FWPPC uses standard Windows resources that you may build using your actual Borland Resources Workshop or you may use Microsoft Visual Studio resources designer.

Harbour for Pocket PC provides full DBFs and Indexes (NTXs, CDXs) support. Developers have all the Harbour functionality from the Windows Mobile operating system, and FWPPC provides an easy to use GUI to develop professional applications.
