as I wrote in my previous email, I'm currently porting Python to some more unusual platforms, namely to a super computer (http://www.research.ibm.com/bluegene/) and a tiny embedded operating system (http://ecos.sourceware.org), which have more or less surprisingly quite similar properties.
Sorry, missed the previous mail. Have two questions for you:
Why porting or why using cmake ? Porting because of VTK (http://www.vtk.org), cmake because it has really good support for cross compiling (cvs version of cmake). And it has the nice side effect that the manually maintained MSVC project files would not be required anymore.
- Do you know if there're plans for support this two platforms beyond
BlueGene is for running VTK on it, and this will be supported for the coming years. eCos was for testing the cross compile, since this is easier to work with than with BlueGene. I don't know if there will be users for Python on eCos, but then again I didn't have to change anything to get it working on eCos, the configure checks did it all.
