Best programming tool for Palm

Threaded View
    I am a software developer and have written a number of programs for
Windows Mobile, but now I would like to start writing software for the Palm
devices.  The Windows platform has a number of different languages and IDE's
available for development. (I currently use Visual C++ and C# with .NET).
It appears that most of the Palm development is done in C or C++ and
involves a lot more effort to produce programs that are less capable.

    I am experienced with C, C++, C#, Visual Basic for DOS, Visual Basic
(WIN16 & WIN32), Visual Basic.NET, Java, Pascal (Delphi), etc, so I am
really not concerned about the language required. I would rather spend my
time on the program/software that I am writing and not on the tool being
used(IDE and limitations of the language implemented).  Is there anything
available for Palm development that is similar to C# and .NET? Or for that
matter, similar to Visual C++?

Last time I checked the official palm sdk was in C, you can make assumptions
from there.

Get the Codewarrior compiler for Palm.  If you want a framework like MFC,
use POL (Palm Object Library) - comes with Codewarrior 9.x

DataGet® & PocketLog®
Data Collectors
