I'm looking for someone who could help me to port my python app to 
PythonCE. I succefully run it under linux and win32.

I haven't yet buy a PocketPC, because I don't know which model I need (if 
you have advices, according to the app I'm developping...).

The application is a controller which turns an astronomic head into a 
panoramic head. The project is here (sorry, in french only for the 
moment) :

The first beta version can be downloaded here:


The head is driven through a little interface (mainly a serial converter), 
so the PocketPC needs a serial port.

About the software, I need to know several things:

1) Which resolution should I expect from PocketPC? As I would like to buy 
an old one, what are the lowest resolution?

2) How do I retreive 'home dir' and 'temp dir' paths under windows, and 
under PocketPC?

If you are interested by this project, feel free to contact me ;o)


PS : the project can be run without visual, but I realised that my test for 
the pyserial module is not correct. If you don't want to install it, just 
create a serial.py file in the PYHTONPATH dir...
