The following functions retur errors:

:( showconsole()
:( putsl () //puts() does work though

The tutorials you are reading are most likely for WinCE/PPC not Palm OS.
graph_off() is probably the same as showconsole(), applets always start in graph_off() mode.
For putsl() just do:
Code: Select all
putsl(string str) {
puts(str + "\n");

I suspect you are talking about my tutorial on - this is for WindowsCE. In the introduction I do however explain the small changes required to get it to work for the Palm version. (as stated in the posting above, puts is used instead of putsl, and no showconsole() is necessary).
