Thanks for your reply. Well, now I have something else to do in my copious 
spare time. :-)

By "entertained the notion" do you mean the intent was that APR might just 
compile and link with WinCE using Microsoft's compiler and tools? Or did you 
just mean that a port would be feasible, but some additional work would 
probably be required? I guess what I'm really asking is whether you know if 
anyone has actually used APR with WinCE.

Palm is kind of my first thought as a handheld target platform, since they 
seem to have a commitment to GCC-based development tools, but WinCE would 
obviously be good to support as well. But I have encountered enough places 
where MSVC++7.1 gives me problems by falling short of conformance with the 
C++ standard. I shudder to imagine what troubles WinCE would add to those.
