Palm OS is the operating system behind Palm PDAs, phones and game devices - see PalmSource
for details on the OS (recently acquired by Access
, a Japanese software company. Hopefully, plans to port the PalmOS
GUI and APIs onto Linux will proceed despite this takeover, enabling use of TWikiOnLinux
to run TWiki on PalmOS
is not possible since there is no port of Perl to the rather primitive Palm OS, but it is possible to sync read-only TWiki pages onto Palms using various tools.
The maker of Palm PDAs and Treo smartphones is now called Palm
again (formerly called PalmOne), and has launched one WindowsMobile
device (Treo 700) as of Nov 2005, just to really confuse things! As a result, TWikiOnWindowsCE
will be more relevant for Windows-based Palm hardware.

is a new free Palm app to watch. http://geni.ath.cx/wikiz.html
It simply lets you link between Memos (and appointments, todo, contacts, etc) using either camel case or user chosen tags. Useful for writing drafts which do link, while imagining the TWiki formatting from its raw syntax. Let its development slow down a while, and it might become a small handy tool.
