Important Note: No one seems to be using this (except me)
so I've stopped developing it. If you use it let me know what
you think - perhaps I'll continue working on it.

- What is it?
- Rover is an editor and browser for code written in C and C-like languages (i.e. Pocket C). It allows you to edit across multiple files, tracks objects (functions / global variables / macros / resources / etc.) their names and locations, and let you jump in and out of each's code. It also does auto indent, and can even match parenthasis!
- Download / Use:
- Download the apropriate zip file (above)
- Copy the CAB file to device and double click to install.
- To Run Rover select Rover under Programs on the Start menu.
- A Windows CE 2.0 (or higher) device.

- Should run on anything that Pocket C will.
- Current Version?
- The latest version is Version 0.040 (Beta 2) and is dated July 6,
- Added / Fixed since last release (ver 0.35 - Beta 1):
- Fixed all known PocketPC issues.
- Now able to set the tab length in the edit window.
- Finished with project format (will stay the same for future releases).
- Added a few remaining features.
- Fixed a couple minor UI bugs in dialogs.
- Known Problems:
- Does not well behave if multiple projects are opened at the same time (do not do it - any changes you've made will probably be lost!)
- Only ready unicode files.
- No help.
- Why was it written?
- I'm traveling right now, one of things I do to pass the time is program.
Pocket C is great for this, and when I wish that my H/PC did something it
doesn't, well I do my best to make it.
But with a large project spread over several files Pocket C's editor is very difficult to use - Rover was my solution. I wrote it and used it to develop my own apps, but then realized that others might apreciate it, so over the last several months I've cleaned it up and here it is!
- Where was it written?
- Rover was written in India, The Maldives, Nepal, Thailand, the US (Guam), and Micronesia.

- What is OnHiatus Software?
- This is a collection of software that I wrote while traveling (mostly) in Africa. It's
all free, none of it is guaranteed, and it all does something I find useful but
you may not. I only have an HP Jornada 720 so I can't comment on it's suitability
for other machines. See my Software page for
other Windows CE applications in the OnHiatus Software project.
NOTE:This Application is Freeware. No guarantees, I
can't be held responsible for any damages caused by using or misusing this
program! You get what you pay for...
USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!
Rover is very far from completely robust, furthermore I have only tested it on a HP
Jornada 720. Be careful and backup your work! I did loose data in early versions of
