Palm Programming in Basic
"Palm Programming in Basic" is designed as a comprehensive reference for professional programmers to help get them up to speed on AppForge, NS Basic, and CASL. Jon Kilburn is President of an Internet Wireless Applications Development firm and has developed dozens of applications for the Palm OS and Windows CE platforms. Kilburn is also the editor of Pinnacle Publishing's "PDA Developer" newsletter and the senior chair for the PDA DevCon developer conference. As such, Kilburn is uniquely poised to teach developers the effective use of these languages. Kilburn explains to readers how to structure a program for hand held development, how to develop the conduit to pass information from a PC desktop to a Palm device, and also reviews the conduit tools on the market and available to developers. A final section of the book provides a guide to developing Web Clipping applications, some Palm utilities every programmer could use, and a small appendix for performing data compression. "Palm Programming in Basic" provides a foundation upon which programmers can begin to develop applications for the Palm OS with very little knowledge of the underlying OS.
