python port for iPod

Hi,
Since May 2005 there is a port of python (v2.4.1) for Apple iPod.
Porting was an 'easy' job, the only consideration was how you can
write with a
iPod, ipodlinux [1] people did an interface called iPodRead that
allows you
type into iPod scrolling left or right on the wheel. (This affects to
the file
Parser/myreadline.c, line 47).
Furthermore, is necessary run configure with options: --without-threads,
--without-shared and --with-cxx and build it in a cross-compile
environment
for ARM architecture.

Running make the only problem was the function hypot (umm, like ipod
:) in the math
module (I don't remember the problem) but i had to change hypot(x,y) to
sqrt(x*x+y*y).

You can see the differences between python original and python ported
source
in [2].

First announce about the port can be found in [3].
More info about this port, cool pictures and binaries & source code in
[4].

Basically I want to (1) export the XML file off the iPod, (2) change things in the XML, (3) import it back onto the iPod, and (4) have my iPod behave according to that new knowledge. Steps 1-3 I have down, but for some reason step 4 is...

I am trying to get enough referrals. Check it out here. ...
