Re: porting client software to EPOC ?

I am not familiar with EPOC.  In general, porting the LDAP
client libraries to any POSIX or POSIX-like operating system
should be fairly straight forward.  Even for very non-POSIX
like operating systems, porting shouldn't be too difficult.
I suggest just jumping on in.
