Projects / Cibyl


Cibyl is a programming environment that allows compiled C/C++ programs to execute on Blackberry and J2ME phones. Cibyl uses GCC to compile programs to MIPS binaries, and these are then translated into Java bytecode. The use of binary translation and the simplicity of translating MIPS instructions means that Cibyl programs can be quite well-performing. With Cibyl, programs written in C/C++ can be ported to Blackberry and J2ME without switching languages.
