Hi Guy,

last night I finally hit the inofficial size limit for compiled programs under V2 with my latest project :(

I can't use V3 because it is not only slow, the compiled code simply crashes. Soooo, any chance for a first glimpse on your compiler? (I'm not too optimistic since I'm sure you would have mentioned if there were enough progress). I could also need a little more speed in my code, I can't think of any more optimizations :-)

Progress has been slow. I've got too many things on the go at the same time and my brain has given up. I will get back on it as soon as I can.

Come on Wolfgang, what about C++. I know it took me 18 months to cross over from PocketC to eVC & C++ but that's just cause I'm thick.

btw: for a couple of months I have done all my coding & testing using VC6 to get round having to use the CE emulator etc. My development speed has greatly increased because of this. Every so often I build for CE just to make sure it works.

The new 3D version of Space Treker is starting to look like a game & I will post a link to some screen shots sometime soon. My wee PocketC game still sells well though the war has had an impact on sales for the last week or two.

Hi Ian,

great, you are still alive! :-)

I bought a book about EVC & PocketPC programming and read through the first three chapters, and I downloaded and installed EVC,


my latest program (MidNote, a graphical composition tool) turns out to be a lot of fun to work on and improve, and is selling quite well. I am amazed I was able to do it in PocketC. The advantage was that I could leverage a lot of code from my older programs. So I was able to develop this in only about 6 months of on-and-off programming evenings. Now it is around 300K of source code (ASCII, so that makes 600K Unicode, to be precise), so that the task to port this to EVC seems daunting. I'm afraid it would be more or less a rewrite as I am using a lot of tricks and tweaks that probably work only in PocketC. So that's why I am so interested in a PocketC-compatible compiler without PocketC's bugs and weaknesses.

Understood. Glad to hear you are getting sales.

I did think of writing a few functions so that PocketC code could execute but gave up & just started from scratch. Performance is blazingly fast of course compared to PocketC.

All the best
