Re: [wince-devel] Emacs on iPAQ
- i got the same prob toowhen the scrollbar are there, they take much room and they put in some bugs----- Original Message -----From: Christian WitternSent: Friday, August 31, 2001 9:51 PMSubject: [wince-devel] Emacs on iPAQ
Having Emacs on the iPAQ in the pocket is absolutely thrilling.
However, I had to jump through some hoops to get it where I am now,
which is still not perfect. For the benefit of others, and in the
spirit of Rainers quest for more information/ressources sharing, I
will contribute the little that I can:
-- I am running a Japanese version of the OS on my iPAQ. The annoying
thing about this is that the Storage Card gets a different name, in
Japanese, which constantly confuses Emacs (and me). I finally found a
solution for this problem in a registry patch, as described here
by Philippe Majerus. As Philippe says, find the registry key
and add a String named "Folder" with your new name as value. I named
it "Storage Card" as in English versions and am a happy camper now.
-- Another problem was that the original soft keyboard can not be used
to input to Emacs, I have yet to find a solution to this. In the
meanwhile, I am using the Fitaly Keyboard available at
www.twsolutions.com (this is a commercial product I bought two years
ago for my older WinCE device -- it is much more convenient to use
than the original keyboard).
-- I had to experiment a little with the geometry settings. Since
WinCE does not allow command line parameters, doing this kind of
fiddling with shortcuts only is awful. For this, I used a handy
little freeware utility called nOpen by Tomoaki Nakashima, available
at many pocket pc download places. This also allow you to create
shortcuts very conveniently. I finally settled on a geometry of
28x13, which allows to use the soft keyboard. I wonder if Emacs could
be aware of the activation of the soft keyboard and then resize
accordingly. I have to investigate if this could be done in lisp.
Now here is something I have not been able to figure out: When I try
to select something by sliding the stylus over the screen, Emacs takes
me to the very end of the buffer and scrolls all text up, so that I
only see a blank window. If I use the scrollbar to scroll down a bit,
I see that the text from where I started to the very end is selected.
Does anybody have an idea what is going on here?
All the best,

- I tried installing maxima on my ARM pocket pc. GCL works perfectly but
maxima says it cannot find maxima.dll (error 126). GCLDIR is set
correctly and all the empty .o files are in the maxima directory. I
saw other posts mentioning a gcl update but i could not find this on
