Project Description

Hi, I'd like a tool (or set of tools) designed to convert Palm OS source code (C/C++) into BlackBerry source code (java). I realize that this is a big project, and I don't necessary expect most of the code to be immediately working of course. Rather, what I want is a tool that will convert the basic headers, typedefs, functions (signatures, types, etc.), resources (menus) and such to something that can be at least compiled for the BlackBerry OS. When the inner parts of a function can't be converted, simply including those lines in the resulting file as comments would be ideal. Obviously, a true port would require a lot of manual effort. So, what I'd ideally like is something that can do the basic conversions and produce a result which, with no additional work, will at least look similar on the BlackBerry to the way it does on the Palm. I would prefer a command-line tool, written in C, so that it can be built/run on Windows or Unix. Thank you.
