Hurray! I got my iPaq finally!
I have linux installed (see http://www.ipaqlinux.com).
I spent a little time adding a new target: arm, in the make system. You
should be able to build the sword libraries for the arm cpu now. After
having some success with the command line tools, I copied over cheatah
and reworked it slightly for a small device. The new UI is under
sword/apps/X11/micros/ It's pretty cool to see sword running on a
handheld! :) The compression drivers work really well in this
scenerio. Slow search though. It takes about 1 minute to search the
entire compressed KJV module on the ipaq. I'll post screen shots soon.
I'll also build a tarball of compiled binaries plus a few compressed
modules, for the ipaq.
I still want to try out your PDQ web interface. I have to get irda to
work via my Nokia 8290 now, grab a WAP browser, and then try out your
stuff. Putting all the texts on the device won't be as cool/practicle
as grabbing any text off of the website on demand!
