Wow seems interesting. Also I wonder if this other SNES emu would work better than Pocket SNES? http://www.snesadvance.org/index.html
Yes, that is what I thought too, seeing this one's last update (after 2005) happened after PocketSNES' last update (Feb 16th, 2004). I also looked at the compatibility list and this one seems to have the largest (or maybe PocketSNES was not tested with a lot of roms).
pocket SNES was tested, only like 20 games work I have a list of maybe 200-300 games compatability list for pocket snes

EDIT holy cow the one DJ_O mentioned is a lot better (I think its the same one just updated)

No one even mentioned SNESAdvance, the first SNES emu for the GBA.

If you want porting, I'd recommend looking at some of the DS emus, like SnemulDS. They actually support sound, and run things full speed.

Edit: Oh wait, SnesAdvance was mentioned :P whoops

But the question is: is there one in C ? Let's hope calc84maniac finds one in C and ports it :P jk

I own: 83+ ; 84+SE ; 76.fr ; CX CAS ; Prizm ; 84+CSE
Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

Snemul appears to use mostly C, but there are a few c++ files in the ARM7 source.

That's actually another issue: DS Emulators will probably use the second core, which doesn't exist on the nspire.

More importantly, they'd use the 2D graphics engine to mostly offload the rendering from the CPU. It would probably be a much better idea to do another port from the GP2X or similar.
