Question porting windows ce code to linux


Does anyone have any experience with porting windows ce (ARM processor) code to linux (intel processor)?

I am trying to understand the difficulties in performing such a task.


I know window ce is customized for the device it runs on. Does this mean that porting device specfic code to a laptop running linux is an overwhelming task?

i dont know much about the issue, but if its from an ARM processor are you
atleast moving it to a system with another ARM processor, if not....you'd probably need
some sort of emulator to run the code or you'd have to recompile some source code to get it to run on an x86 processor (or other processor of choice). i think youd have to recompile it jsut to get it to run on Linux.

I have started to compile the code for x86 running linux. I am getting errors (not surprised) durring compile.

The error are related to declerations. such as ULONG, DWORD, WORD .....

I will just attack it one error at a time. I will have to replace the Win CE headers winsock.h winnt.h windows.h .... with equalvalent linux headers.

I will keep posting my progress.


Thanks

you be using it for on Linux if i may ask.

This is a routing protocol code for a device that will communicate P to P. The requirement is to make run in linux. May be this thread should be in the networking forum?

BTW: How do you make directories visiable to Make so that one does not have to type in all the dpendencies for the target.


I have code in /project/include/*.h
and /project/src/*.cpp
In my Makefile

I have Objects = a.o b.o c.o .......

I put in incs = /project/include
srcs = /project/inlcude

then I used VPATH = $(incs):$(src)

a.o : $(objects)

a windows function for retrieving the termination status of a thread is "GetExitCodeThread" .

What is an equal call linux pthread to get the termination status?

other functions I need to find equal functions in linux are:

wince linux
---------------------------------------------------------
CreateThread ---- pthread_create
GetExitCodeThread ---- ??
TerminateThread --- pthread_kill ??
GetCurrentThreadId -- ???
