Heya,
This is the poll regarding what platforms to port Claw to / make it compatible from the beginning.
Feel free to post suggestions for other platforms too.

And of course please vote (for multiple platforms)!


Info to admins/mods:
Something went wrong posting this I guess.
I just clicked add poll.
Please don't delete it anyways. It should be deleted after the poll is over. Also it took me an eternity to write this on my phone.

I voted PC, Android, TI-84+CE and TI-Nspire, but I am torn apart between Microcat and GBA. Does the still have a big fanbase for homebrew ROMs?

I don't know. Ivoah once told me that this could be a good idea. He probably knows a lot more about this.

DJ Omnimaga

Ah ok. What about the 3DS?

Well basically Claw runs on anything that can execute C code.
The drivers are something different. They have to be provided by the person porting Claw to the platform but games and program will run on most platforms unmodifed then.

DJ Omnimaga

Oh that's good then. I was worried about dependencies such as libraries.

Claw by itself doesn't depend on anything except the most basic C functions. It doesn't even make use of the string library by default nor the float one.
Many things will be modules.

DJ Omnimaga

Yeah it's better to not depend of libraries for such language. Sure, it makes it easier to develop it for a platform, but then it makes it hard to port it.


DJ Omnimaga

By the way, is it easy (other than graphics) to port 9860gII C add-ins to the cg20?

I've never programmed for the cg20, but since C is generally quite portable, I assume it's not that hard if you program the right way from the beginning.

DJ Omnimaga

Ah ok, and yeah I was talking about someone using the official 9860g SDK, for example.
