With more than 16 million PDAs shipped to date, Palm has defined the market for handhelds, having dominated this class of computing devices ever since it began to outpace competitors six years ago. The company's strength is the Palm OS, and developers loyal to this powerful and versatile operating system have created more than 10,000 applications for it. Devices from Handspring, Sony, Symbol, HandEra, Kyocera, and Samsung now use Palm OS, and the number of registered Palm Developers has jumped to 130,000. If you know C or C++, and want to join those who are satisfying the demand for wireless applications, then Palm OS Programming: The Developer's Guide, Second Edition is the book for you. With expanded coverage of the Palm OS--up to and including the latest version, 4.0--this new edition shows intermediate to experienced C programmers how to build a Palm application from the ground up. There is even useful information for beginners. Everything you need to write a Palm OS application is here, from user interface design, to coding a handheld application, to writing an associated desktop conduit. All the major development environments are discussed, including commercial products such as Metroworks CodeWarrior, Java-based environments such as Sun KVM and IBM VisualAge Micro Edition, and the Free Software Foundation's PRC-Tools or GCC. The focus, however, is C programming with CodeWarrior and PRC-Tools. New additions to the second edition include: A tutorial that takes a C programmer through the installation of necessary tools and the creation of a small handheld application. A new chapter on memory, with a comprehensive discussion of the Memory Manager APIs. Greatly expanded discussions of forms, forms objects, and new APIs for the Palm OS. Updated chapters on conduits that reflect the newer Conduit Development Kit. The best-selling first edition of this book is still considered the definitive guide for serious Palm programmers; it's used as the basis of Palm's own developer training materials. Our expanded second edition promises to set the standard for the next generation of Palm developers.
Throughout the book, expert applications developer Robert Mykland provides real-world debugging and architecture advice, as well as details on advanced topics such as using shared libraries.

A guide to developing applications for the main types of modern mobile devices--the Palm OS and the Pocket PC, this book focuses on using the new MobileVB tool from AppForge to create PDA applications. The applications developed are specifically for Palm devices, pocket computers with the Pocket PC/Windows CE operating system, and for Kyocera and similar communicators. Descriptions are of a different, free development environment from Microsoft--eMbedded Visual Basic 3.0--that allows programmers to create applications for pocket computers with the Pocket PC OS and its previous version, Windows CE. Tasks that use databases including a compact version of the SQL server are emphasized. Described are the basic features of MobileVB and eVB and their limitations when compared to standard Visual Basic. A detailed description is given of the controls (ingots) of each of the languages, the library functions, and the accompanying utilities. Also covered are a wide range of possible programs including games, applications that use databases, and Internet technologies.
A straightforward tutorial teaches developers to create applications using the CodeWarrior development environment, covering topics such as Palm Programming Fundamentals, User Interface Development, Memory Management, and much more. Original. (Intermediate).
The application that is created is a bona fide Palm OS program that can be
distributed like any other. Note, however, that any device that your program is
installed on needs to have the Plua2 runtime library onboard. Note also that there

This book is for students and professionals who are intrigued by the prospect of learning and using a powerful language that provides a rich infrastructure for creating programs. No programming knowledge is necessary to benefit from this book except for the section on Lua bindings, which requires some familiarity with the C programming language. A certain comfort level with command-line operations, text editing, and directory structures is assumed. You need surprisingly little in the way of computer resources to learn and use Lua. This book focuses on Windows and Unix-like (including Linux) systems, but any operating system that supports a command shell should be suitable. You'll need a text editor to prepare and save Lua scripts. If you choose to extend Lua with libraries written in a programming language like C, you'll need a suitable software development kit. Many of these kits are freely available on the Internet but, unlike Lua, they can consume prodigious amounts of disk space and memory.
