 ANNOUNCE: PtCon 0.1 - Console for Palm Tcl on the Palm PDA

PtCon 0.1 is now available on SourceForge!

PtCon (pronounced P-T-Con) stands for Palm Tcl Console. Palm Tcl,
developed by Ashok Nadkarni, is the port of Tcl 7.5p2 to PDA's
(personal digital assistants) that run Palm Incorporated's
operating system (Palm OS). PtCon enables the creation and
exectution of Palm Tcl scripts interactively within a Palm-
enabled PDA. The scripts are stored within PtCon's database
between sessions. As Palm Tcl scripts are evaluated, the
results are retained and displayed individually. Each
evaluation result generated during the current PtCon session
can be redisplayed at any time.

PtCon is developed using the Toucan IDE for Palm Tcl on either
the GNU/Linux or Microsoft Windows platform. The user interface
of PtCon consists of Palm resource elements, such as forms,
menus, strings, and bitmaps. The internal functionality is
implemented via Palm Tcl scripts that are embedded in the PtCon
resource file (ptcon.prc) and auxillary scripts stored in the
PtCon database file (PtConDB.pdb).

In order to run PtCon, a PDA that has Palm OS 3.0 or later must
be used. In addition, a computer must be available with which to
install the PtCon program into the PDA. Instructions for
installing PtCon into a PDA are included in the PtCon User
Manual, which is in the distribution.

This project will serve as a means of refining the initial release
of PtCon. It is hoped that PtCon will become the preferred tool
for experimenting with Palm Tcl scripts in a mobile environment.
Feedback on ways to improve PtCon is always welcome.

The most recent version of PtCon can be downloaded at the PtCon
SourceForge Summary page at http://www.*-*-*.com/
The PtCon home page us at http://www.*-*-*.com/
PtCon is licensed under the same license as Tcl (BSD). Details
can be found in the distribution.

Enjoy!
