just a quick note.. even though i stopped working with symbian more than two years ago, i still receive quite a few emails each month asking me for support on symbian issues. i always tell those ppl the same thing: forget symbian c++ and look python. use python to do the main heavy work of your application and only write small extensions for missing base functionality in c++.
anyway, symbian c++ and the sdk are a really horrible combination. seriously: make it your priority to find ways for avoid coding in symbian c++.
quick update: there are alternative tool chains. afaik they are linux-based. but they seem to offer a much nicer way to use make to build your applications. avoiding most of the horrible perl-based symbian sdk.
