Yes. But as my DC does not measure pressure I have to guess from my gauge. 
Currently I use JDivelog[1] which automatically calculates SAC for you if you 
enter volume, start and end pressure. Depth comes from DC of course.

Yes, but as you can see in git I have not been working on it for four months 
now but it's now one of the first points on my todo list.

It's plain C++ and QT, so if you have QT running there I would guess you only 
need to compile it. I have a friend who has (had?) a zaurus and a Suunto Gekko 
- maybe he will also try.
