The main problem I'm bumping with is that HP thought it would be awesome to just shut down every single thing related to Palm OS development. After googling a lot I found out CodeWarrior was the de facto IDE for Palm OS development... but I was soon disappointed as I learned that Palm moved from the 68K architecture to ARM, and of course, CodeWarrior was just focused on Palm OS 4 development.
Now, I realize Palm OS 4 software can be run on Palm OS 5, but I'm looking to use some of the "newer" APIs. Also, I have the Wi-fi add-on card so I wanted to create something that uses it. I thought what I needed was PODS (Palm OS Development Suite) but not only I can't find it anywhere but also it seems it was deprecated during Palm OS's lifetime. It really doesn't help the fact that I'm a beginner, but I really want to give this platform some life. Any general tip, book, working link or even anecdotes related to all this will be greatly appreciated."
Dear diary: today I farted on a SoaC. It was a blissful experience, seeing those crumbles of rotten gas impact all the bits and bolts of the ARM-based processor. I heard once about a girl who tried to do it with an Intel Quad Core (Alas, the specific model has not been disclosed). Suffice to say she ended up the rest of her days in a madhouse. God forbid anyone doing such a thing with a SPARC. His or her soul shall be coursed for several eternities.
