I have heard people that manage to put Erlang on Arm based Linux PDA (IPAQ with
Linux system).
I have also heard of some try to compile Erlang for PalmOS 3. It seems to
require many change, but would allow to have Erlang on a Treo cell phone.
Does someone know if PalmOS 5 (running on Arm) will ease the port of Erlang to
the Palm platform ?
The new palm integrate a bluetooth chip and having Erlang running on it would be
sexy.
I have know idea of the required changes and how hard it is...
