I just bought an iriver story e-book reader and I'm wondering what language the open source code is written in?

Here's a link to where to find the code, http://www.iriver.com/opensource.html

The part I looked at was in C and assembler.

Most of those will be in C.

Thanks for your help.

That's too bad. I'm not so keen on learning C. Feels old and not so sexy.

It's old, sure -- but sexy is a matter of opinion. To a lot of people, skyscrapers may be sexy, but their foundations wouldn't be. But they couldn't exist without those foundations.

c is foundational for a huge percentage of sexy software.
