QED is probably the best onboard editor for PocketC apps.

If it's a really big app, then you'll want to use the desktop edition. The PDA based compiler can only compile app's up to a certain size (about 48k of compiled instructions, while the desktop can go up to 256k).


The PToolboxLib guy.

It's possible by copying your source files into memos, but then you must split them to get past the 4k limit, also as said above the limit as to how big the compiled applet can be is less when compiling on the device.
Or you could easily convert your source files into doc's, I know iSilo has a program that can convert several on one click, I'm not sure about the other doc readers/editors.

ClipSync is a conduit between the clipboard on the PC and the one on the Palm. When run during hotsync, the contents of the clipboards get swapped.

I use it to get source from PC to PDA. If the source is bigger than the memopad 4k limit, it will let me save it as .DOC, readily openable in QED.

Apart from that specific task, it is always fun to see what I had forgotten on the clipboard of either machine ;-)

A great tool!
