Don't know if anyone knows this but the source is available for a virtual Palm Pilot. If someone could port this to Amiga OS we could use all the Palm Pilot applications. Unix, Mac and Windows sources are all available. The Unix source could be ported easy. http://www.palmos.com/dev/tools/emulator/#source

Not hard? Oh, I dunno...
"We use pthreads, so you need GNU glibc2 (aka Linux libc6) C library and
a 2.x kernel on a Linux system. Other operating systems need to support
true threads.
The source makes heavy use of C++ templates and exceptions. On Linux,
you must have egcs-1.1.1 or better to compile it. egcs-1.1 or any gcc
below 2.95 may not work."
And you need FLTK, lest you rewrite it to use MUI (spit) or Reaction :)

If this all that need to be done, to support it then I believe it can be done.
I do believe the equivalent to glibc is xmul.library ?
GCC is an C++ compiler so some small rework.
Emulators only use gadgets to setup the configuration,
Just make a new config program routines, itís more easy then porting the GUI.
If the program is heavily based on fork() and clone() then itís defiantly hard to port,
ending up rewriting every line.
Before you post ides on thins to port you may check

In reply to Comment 2 (kjetil):
pthreads is one problem, reliance on fltk is another. Fix both and you have a port. Possible, yes. So easy it should have been finished already? No.
I ain't excactly doom-mongering here :)

As I posted last time there were request like this, I have I own projects, and I have no time, no Amiga, So if any one has time look at source code, you are free to do so.
Last time coded on the Amiga it was in Blitz Basic so... or was it C hello world? : )

Would be nice to have but good luck for the guy doing it.
Maybe someone with a linux crosscompiling would solve the EGCS issue ???
As for pthread is there any other way on the Amiga to have threads ?

There is a pthreads implementation for the Amiga. It's on the
geekgadgets ftp site in the alpha section.

My god, you're right. I wonder what you need to use it, though. Are readme's considered harmful these days? Just a bunch of includes, an archive of objects and two bourne shell wrappers for gcc... I'll start playing with that in just 12 days, ok? :)

Personnaly i find MUI a bit overkill and just a lil bit slugish , which shouldn't be a problem on os4 :D , aslong as certain apps that use it stop crashing

I guess we will only be seeing a MorphOS port then.
