As of now, there are few features unavailable on Windows Mobile / .Net Compact Framework which prevent IronPython from running. Aside from Double.TryParse and similar cases, the most significant is absence of the Reflection.Emit, the mechanism IronPython uses for its code generation.

Subject: [IronPython] IronPython on Windows Mobile

Hi All,

I was wondering if it was possible to have IronPython running on Windows Mobile. I started compiling IronMath initially but I found that certain cases like CompilerGeneratedAttribute, Double.TryParse() were creating problems. Before I try to investigate into this further, I wanted to know if it is a practical idea to run IronPython on the Windows Mobile environment? I have seen Python on Nokia 60. I wanted to have this working so that we could have a light weight framework written in .NET which can support smaller applications written for companions using IronPython.
