OnBoard Suite is a C-language development environment that runs on and builds code for the Palm handheld platform.
The OnBoard Suite is comprised of:
- the OnBoard C compiler,
- the OnBoard Assembler,
- the SrcEdit programmer's editor, and
- the Sherpa porting tool.
The OnBoard C compiler creates a Palm executable or (at the programmer's option) a Hackmaster hack. You can beam your new program or hotsync it to another Palm if you like. It requires nothing but a Palm (w/ the Palm OS in ROM so your code can take advantage of the library that's there). It does not need a separate run-time library.
The OnBoard Suite has come into being through an interesting string of events. If you are new to OnBoard C or haven't been involved with the community of OnBoard C users on Yahoo, we recommend that you read the super-short history below to help you understand the peculiarly democratic way that we manage the development of this project.
