Please note that as of October 24, 2014, the Nokia Developer Wiki will no longer be accepting user contributions, including new entries, edits and comments, as we begin transitioning to our new home, in the Windows Phone Development Wiki. We plan to move over the majority of the existing entries. Thanks for all your past and future contributions.
S60 2nd Edition (initial release)
ECompXL is a development tool that allows you to compress applications (.app) and executables (.exe) for Symbian OS 7. Applications and executables built with ECompXL run as any other on a target device but, when started, will first decompress themselves on-the-fly before their actual execution. ECompXL uses the standard gzip utility for compression and the zlib library for decompression; a port of zlib is part of the standard Symbian OS 7 SDK.
ECompXL is released under a MIT-style license, see the file copying for more information.
