Nutshell creates self-expanding installer PRC files for distributing Palm programs and data.
With Nutshell there is no longer any need to distribute multiple PRC and PDB files when distributing Palm software. Just create a Nutshell self-expanding installer. After sending the installer file to any Palm device, users can just tap to install. After the installation is complete, the Nutshell can delete itself and automatically launch your program.
Since Nutshell creates a PRC file, it doesn't matter what kind of desktop machine your customers have. Nutshell installers install like a regular Palm file.
A Windows version is also available.
· Any Palm OS Hardware
· Palm OS 3.0
· MacOS X
