Haskell on Pocket PC?

Submitted by dokondr on Thu, 03/30/2006 - 6:37am.

Any ideas on how much work needs to be done for using Haskell on PPC Windows Mobile platform?
It would be interesting to use PPC as:
1) Haskell learning tool, so small code snipets could be entered and run directly on hand-held (REPL). How hard is it to port Hugs to PPC for this? Do any other (then Hugs) implementations exist that are easier to port?
2) Running on PPC Haskell applications cross-compiled on host PC. How much work must be done for GHC to support this?

3) There are several ways both for porting Haskell to PPC as well as cross-compiling Haskell code. Which one makes more sense to implement and will take less effort:
a) Porting/compiling to VM byte code (Java, Parrot)?
b) Porting/compiling to .NET CLR?

4) And finally, do any projects already exist in this area?

I am sorry for confusion that abreviation PPC may cause in the text of
my message. In this context I used 'PPC' to refer to Pocket PC and
nothing else.
