Difference between PocketC & Orbform Designer??

Postby sheik on Fri Oct 10, 2003 9:24 pm

:?:Hi,

I am newbie to the C platform development for Palm and wish to register either the PocketC or Orbform Designer.
What are the main differences between the two softwares.
Which one is best for a newbie on C language and development for Palm.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

I can't speak for Orbforms Designer but I've found PocketC to be great.
I had tried on numerous occasions to learn programming:Visual Basic,C,C++ and QBasic and could never really get past "Hello World".
Pocket C is fairly easy to learn as far as languages go and I can now look at my beginners book on C and understand all of the concepts without too much difficulty.

If you want to learn PocketC, I can recommed Palm Programming for the Absolute Beginner-sorry, authors name slips my mind at the moment.
This was the book that did it for me. Also, if you are a total newbie to programming, it's worth remembering that you actually learn it faster when you have a clear goal or application idea to work towards.
regard,

Mikael

I will have to second the motion for PocketC. It is stripped down in such a way that it is easy to grasp the concepts you are looking for. Do yourself a favor and print out the docs (functions and language) for pocketC. I found that having them in front of me while coding helped a lot. Palm Programming for the absolute beginner is a great way to see many concepts in action. The author Andy Harris must have spent some time here bouncing ideas around while he was working on the book. You can find a link to it on the PocketC PalmOS page off of the orbworks home page.

Hi Sheik:
Have in mind also where do you want to do programming: OrbForms is only desktop based, while with PocketC you can program on the device and desktop.

BUT, OrbForms is the way that major programming environments/languages work today: you visually design the screens and add programming to events (like a button push).

Good luck!

Hi,

Does OrbForms Designer and PocketC produce (output) the same type of bytecode in the form of an runable application?
