:?:I currently write basic programs with Hotpaw Basic. It is very easy to write data to the Datebook. I can create a Datebook record and address each of the predefined fields. I have now played with Pocket C for a couple of weeks and found it to be far superior to Hotpaw Basic in many ways. Do any of you know how I write to the Datebook like Hotpaw Basic?

Check out the DateBook functions in the PToolboxLib. The implementation is more powerful than Hotpaw Basic's in that it allows for repeating appointment access.

There is sample code to do this which comes with PocketC. See your pocketc/samples directory.

The PToolbox datebook support has been out for a few months now and there have been no reports of problems with the current release. So I think it's pretty safe to use. However, as with all apps, you should still test it thoroughly on the the Palm OS Emulator & Simulator using a variety of debug roms to ensure that the app is running at you'd expect. If you do stumble across a bug, just report it and I'll fix it.
