I've also taken a look at this code, and while it does seem pretty portable, the only part that looked fishy at first was an asm file, but all it does is pc speaker sound output. However, the code's a wash with #defines, #ifdef DOS's and unixes, djgpp's, etc. Also, for instance, it sets some hard limits on path lengths. 127 if it's dos, and 1024 if it's unix. Btw, I'm looking into this with open watcom, using it's win32 compilers.
Just some thoughts, Arthur.----- Original Message ----- From: "Jamal Mazrui" <empower@xxxxxxxxx>

Thanks. Please share any notes from your efforts. If you run into a problem and report it here, someone else may be able to help.Jamal On 7/29/2010 10:32 AM, Joseph Lee wrote:Hi, I'll try it via VS2008 (I have 32-bit machine).

I am looking for a C programmer who can compile a 32-bit version using the included source code. The distribution does include make files for Unix-like systems, so my hope is that the code is written in a portable enough manner that a skilled C programmer would be able to recompile it for platforms of today without much difficulty. Can anyone do this via MinGW, or if not, with another C compiler? I would gladly post an updated distribution for anyone to use freely. As an option in the Open Other Format command, Control+Shift+O, EdSharp uses the existing NFBTrans for back translation of .brf or .brl files into plain text (e.g., books downloaded from BookShare or NLS). This does not work on Win64, however. Jamal __________ View the list's information and change your settings at http://www.freelists.org/list/programmingblind No virus found in this incoming message.
