Hi, greetings from Argentina, I?Ǭ¥m new to palm and new to C. I have a background in assembler programming for 68K, but no idea of C even Palm. Do you know any source to start with PocketC?. Thanks a lot.

If you'd like to learn Palm programming from the ground up, order a book called Palm Programming for the Absolute Beginner by Andy Harris.
ISBN: 0-7615-3524-1. It'll give you the basics in almost every aspect of programming in Pocket C and have you up and running in no time. It's a bit dated, but still well worth the money. If you don't want to go down that road, try the sample programs that come with the distribution of the PocketC zip file. If you can't make sense of these, do a search for'PocketC' on the internet and you'll more than likely find links to, or pages with beginners tutorials. Seeing as you don't know any C, I'd still recommend the book over the sample programs etc. as it more or less leads you by the hand through using the language.

Good luck!
