If you’re a developer working on software designed to function on Palm OS-compatible PDAs, you may be interested in downloading the latest version of the Palm OS Emulator, or POSE. POSE gives developers a reliable idea of how their Palm OS applications will work, without going through the hassle of needing to debug software on an actual handheld.
Based on an earlier Palm emulation project called Copilot, Palm has enhanced POSE with new features, debugging support, and support for more recent ROMs. POSE emulates a variety of different Palm-compatible devices, including those made by Palm rival Handspring. The software even supports the use of “skin” files to make the software look like the appropriate PDA, as well. Users will need to have access to ROMs, which can either be downloaded from Palm’s own developer “Resource Pavilion” or can be uploaded from the actual PDA itself.
Version 3.1 is the latest version of POSE to hit the streets. It has far too many enhancements and changes to list here. Please view the
for complete details.
In addition to POSE, users will also need to download the Emulator Skins package and have a ROM file on hand.
