After last month's newsletter went out, club member Robert Robbins decided to give a brief talk about his investigations into programming for the Palm Pilot. He reports that Java, C++, and a language very similar to Visual BASIC can be used. Generally, programs are written on a PC and run under a PalmOS emulator for testing purposes, then downloaded to the Palm Pilot. For Java programs, Sun has produced a Java virtual machine named KVM.
