When you say you got it to compile in Linux, will it run in Linux or is it
just the install file for the phone? I was kinda wondering what all would be
involved making it actually run in a text environment like that? It might be
handy to be able to explore a database without loading it to the phone or

Hi George,

We debug in "real life".  If the programme compiles that is the first 
step, if it doesn't crash when executed on various hand-sets that is the 
second step and if it survives riggerous testing then it gets released. 
No emulation no debug environment.

We haven't thought about developing for any edition other than 3rd.  We 
develop for hand-sets we possess and we only presently have up to 3rd 
edition.  Besides, isn't 5th edition mostly geared towards touch screens?
