     7I heard that John Meacham's jhc compiler produces portable C code, so I grabbed the jhc-0.5.20080307 tarball, built it, wrote a quick Hello, World! test, and built that with jhc. It produced an x86 binary, but also the C code which included the correct gcc command line at the top. Logging into the Nokia scratchbox development environment, I ran the command. It built successfully, and ran on the scratchbox environment. It runs on the device! So we have a working H98 cross-compiler, effectively. This is a long way better than nothing.

     9jhc isn't self-hosting, and requires gcc anyway, so it can't run on the device itself.

     11It's good to finally post some positive progress.
