This is part of a post I made on another forum. I did not get what I wanted there.

Since I have gotten a PPC I want to do some light programming for it but having searched the web I have been unable to find a simple tutorial for using Embedded C++ for the Pocket PC.

I was wondering if you could help me get started. What I want is a very basic introduction into this prorgamming language. Do you know any good books (that do not cost an arm and a leg)? Are there specific books for programming games for the PPC?

Assuming that your palm (force of habit; I'll refer to it from here on out as such, but note that I am aware you don't actually own a Palm[tm]) runs WinCE (which "PocketPC" implies) then your best bet is MSDN as a general reference.

Know this, however: embedded programming is a real bitch. It's easier now than it was 5 years ago, but it still requires some knowledge of the underlying hardware and a few other funny "isms" which you'll need to keep track of. You'll also want a copy of Visual Studio to do cross-compiles on your actual desktop/development machine.
