OK, I've been hoping somone might take an interest in CE with me.
Is this link to a CE port for stl a new one for you to consider?
I'll be out for a couple of weeks to Tucson but when I return I'll try to
look it over if you are not having luck with another port. Has anyone
actually got the Sword libraries to link to a UI under VC++ at all yet? I
have some MFC UI components built in house that I can cyphen off for making
a decent UI on a ce platform. It would make for some good sanctification of
the code sense much of it may become part of a weapon system on a handheld
device for the infantry.
