Mflops - VC++ 6.0 to PocketPC 2003 second edition

Is it possible to make a 1992 flops.c program by Al Alburto which compiled
in VC++ 6.0 on Windows XP work on a Pocket PC with windows mobile 2003 second
edition.

I haven't programmed for a long time. Is it required to have .net compact
framework to transfer to PPC 2003?

If you know the Mflops for a Dell Axim 30 at 624 Mhz, Please state instead
of how to make C program work on Dell Axim.

Thanks
for your response

I should tell you that I am not familiar with the program. But as VC++ 6.0
was released _years_ before the framework it is a sure bet that it does not
depend on it.

Sorry to hear that. :-)

I don't believe it is a requirement, you should check a PPC group.

On your way over, you can read this link

http://msdn.microsoft.com/embedded/d...e/default.aspx

and scroll down to the Native Code Development section. It has links to the
development tools to use for the PPC. I haven't used the most recent version
(4) of the PPC tools but I can tell you that is quite easy to pick up using
version 3 _if_ you are familiar with VC++ 6.0.

I don't know the program. But if it is "vanilla" C, recompiling and linking
with the PPC tools may go without a hitch. If however, it assumes an x86
hardware architecture or makes use of Win32 features available on XP but not
the PPC, then you are looking at more work to port it.
