WML to WMLC Compiler

There are two types of WML - straight WML and compiled WML. The latter is what the microbrowser in your phone understands and it's the job of the WAP gateway to translate WML to WMLC. When measuring the size of deck to send to a client microbrowser you need to count the compiled bytes rather than the raw WML. Also it's more efficient to send the compiled WML, teh size is smaller and the gateway has less work to do. Now there's a new WML compiler available. It's only alpha quality but you can use it from C, Perl or PHP (via System()). You can even pipe content to it on the command line. The file download is here
