Not to my knowledge Dec 18, 2002

I don\'t know of any (particularly shareware!). I\'m a Palm developer, and I\'ve been looking out for this kind of tool. I haven\'t searched in the last month or so, though, so who knows.


Most developers write conduits for their apps using Visual Basic to allow users to manipulate their data on the PC and then send it back to the Palm device. I\'m not sure about PocketPC however--I don\'t develop for that OS.


Keep an eye on www.Palmgear.com -- if one does come out it\'s likely to appear there. The problem is that the structure of the db has to be known to display it, and that isn\'t always predictable.

It describes the PRC file format (how handy are you in building your own tools?)

More PDA-related info in "Communicate" Dec 18, 2002

This month\'s AIIC \"Communicate\" is running an article of mine on the use of PDAs by interpreters, which may or may not be helpful.

An emulator, or just screenshots? Dec 22, 2002

Do you want a full emulator, or just want the ability to take screenshots of your palm app?

If you want a full emulator, you can find one at: http://www.palmos.com/dev/tools/emulator/

It\'s free, but you need to register as a developer to use any of the Rom images (you need these to actually run the emulator).

If all you need is the ability to take screenshots of your app on the palm, there is a nice little app out there called Screenshot - http://www.linkesoft.com and it costs about 12 dollars.
