Hi there,

i want to port a SQL database engine to the Agenda VR3 Linux PDA, this is a
the first pda based on linux which comes to the market.

storing the data in .txt tables is quite nice, but, if you need large
databases, its a pain (sorting/indexing/jump in the file a.s.o.), so, if MS
can port SQL2000 to the WinCE devices, the linux group should be able to do
this also!

I want to do the port, the problem is, i dont know anything about the
source, on such a little Device, i think we dont need this stuff:

the smaller the memory/overload footprint is, the better is the program, in
my mind i see the postgresql database as one of the default apps on this
device and EVERY program can easily access data by the sql engine!

we dont need to have security, no user validation
i dont think we will need transactions
i believe we only need ONE database (maybe the PostGREsql Engine can
automaticaly add the name of the application which creates the database as a
prefix to the tablename, so no table can be twice created :)
we should keep the cache as low as possible

on the agenda side we have until now the following languages:
C/C++
Phyton
Perl
TCL

for this languages we should have access to postgresql

i hope on help

best regards
ray
