For those of you in the UK who remember BBC Basic, I found that brandy, which is a clone of BBC Basic written to run on other systems such as linux, works on the Zaurus. You can get the source code here: http://users.argonet.co.uk/users/dave_daniels/

I used the zgcc compiler and had to find a copy of libc_nonshared.a in order to get it working (thanks to mavlosky for that piece of information)

One cool feature is that it can also be used in scripts as well and a very nice structured Basic it is too. Of course it is missing the graphics and built in assembler features in the Linux/Unix version due to the author maximising it's portability.

I am trying to compile a program using the zgcc compiler and get the following error:

undefined reference to 'stat'

Here is a small test program that displays the same error:


struct stat buf;
char *fn;
int st;
st = stat( fn, &buf );

I have checked the obvious that stat.h is there and I have searched this forum and the internet and only come across a couple of references to this, but they were both in a foreign languages. Even translated they didn't seemed to make sense although it seems to be a problem with a library missing or incorrect? I am posting here to see if someone can help me out.

I am using a Zaurus 5500 with the sharp 3.13 ROM. Thanks for any help in advance.

Are there any problems with www.mmhart.com? I understand someone in this forum runs the site and would be grateful if they could tell me whether its up and running or not since I have been trying to access it for a week.

I was looking to download blassic and when I goto www.mmhart.com I get nothing as if the server is down. This happens whether I access it at home, work or whatever so I know its not a computer problem.

This is the point where everyone replies that they can access it fine :-)

Thanks in advance!

Does anyone know the REXX has ever been ported to the Zaurus 5500? From my searching I would assume not, but sometimes these pieces of software can hide in odd corners of the internet as I have found out before!

After I got my Zaurus back from Sharp Repair I noticed that when I place it in its cradle, quite often the orange battery light will start flashing and I have to remove and replace it to stop it doing that. Sometimes I have to do this more than once. It never used to do this. They flashed it with ROM 3.13. The device seems to work fine otherwise. Would this occur if they had subtly damaged the serial connector or could this be a software problem due to the new ROM version?
