Full Version: Cross-Compile or Reverse Engineer... x86 to Zaurus?

I've been looking for x86 emulators, but maybe I'm heading down the wrong path. Instead, is there a kit that will cross-compile an existing x86 DOS executable to the Zaurus QTopia? Or... is there a way to reverse engineer the exectuble to the C++ code and then compile it on the Zaurus?

I'm thinking this could be complicated, since I assume most executables use DOS (or Windows) handles and commands. So... to cross-compile a DOS x86 executable you would have to cross-compile the executable AND DOS itself.

Hm... maybe this is a dead end.

I'm new to Zaurus porting and compiling. I searched for this topic in the existing forums but couldn't find this. Has this been discussed before? Any information or success stories?

I have a simple DOS ASCII-based executble that reads an old absolete file format which I would love to get working on the Zaurus.

Big dead end. Stick to emulation. Unless you have the originall source code to the application, then it's merely a large amount of work.

*sigh*... that's what I figured... oh well... smile.gif
