[Spread-users] Spread client/lib for Macintosh? For Windows/CE?

Everything should work out of the box except the Windows/CE and palm.

A Windows CE port of just the spread library (all you need for clients)
may be as trivial as making up a windows makefile/project and compiling
it. We have done some Win/CE development with portions of the spread
code and it took a bit of porting because of non-traditional file
handling and a bit of sockets, but the library is fairly minimal. 

If I remember right you may need to change alarm.c some to use wince
logging instead of the logfile/console.

I havn't done palm work myself, but I thought that it didn't support
standard sockets, so it will be more work.
