||This one's a tuffie.
It took me over 2 days to get somewhere close to what I wanted. Specifically: to write C code with which I'm very familiar, and automagically have it installed on the palm.
A the end of these steps, you will own an RDT: Rapid Development Tool, that will get the code you write, loaded onto your palmtop
Be warned now. Every single piece of install documentation on the relevant sites is WRONG, out of date, incomplete, or erroneous. *Most* of the ~/README's are equally irrelevant as they focus on Windoze/Mac/Unix, not Linux.
There are endless pits I fell into. Hopefully these steps will prevent them for you. The result is a worthwile, effortless RDT. Enjoy
