Thanks, that's valuable. I was able to get a C++ demo program for the 
board working on SPARC without obvious problems, so I'm hoping to be 
able to build on that (in between everything else :-) to rewrite the 
hardware supplier's Windows-only demo in portable form. Shouldn't be a 
big job and would definitely be useful for ourselves.
