Anyone doing any PDA programming?

It looks very attractive to do so. My biggest beef is that there are no ML tools available. There is a very expensive assembler from Intel for the stronghold, but everything around Palm is centered on C and C++. It just seems like the natural thing would be to go ML for pda's. I could see C for the WinCE boxes since you have more overhead to work with, but in the 8meg environment of the Palms, I'd think ml would be the way to go.

Argh... I JUST saw a site the other day with a Palm software development app... now I don't remember the name. ::grumble::

It was set up so you could develop the palm app entirely on the palm itself. Sounded cool for people with development inclinations... I'll see if I can find it again.

www.forum.nokia.com/main.html <== Nokia's developer forum might also have some tools for the new Communicator. [nokiausa.com]

That thing looks *very* PDA-like.

And you're right, it seems like PDA is the wave of the future, although I would think that they would all have internet capabilities. Will pda's change to fit the web or will the web change to fit pda's?

There is a version of Visual Basic for the Windows CE/Pocket PC PDAs. I haven't done anything significant with it yet, but it was very easy to download and run my test program.

The feature set of the Visual Basic is equivalent to what was available in version 3.0--no classes, no DLLs, etc.
