Palm Basic is a utility written for the Palm series of handheld devices, it is designed to allow you to write programs on your Palm for your Palm.
The language is designed to be simple to use, yet sufficiently powerful to allow the construction of genuinely useful programs. Palm Basic consists of a program management screen, similar to memo pad. This allows you to organise your programs by category.
From here, you can edit and run your programs, or you can go into console mode. Console mode allows you to execute single lines of BASIC, or to run your programs by name. Palm Basic supports integer, floating point, and string variables, as well as single and multi-dimensional arrays. It supports the common structures found in BASICs i.e. for - next loops, do - loop, if - else - then (either on a single line or over multiple lines), goto and gosub. It contains built-in procedures for formatted printing and inputing, basic graphic operations, as well as a full set of floating point math functions.
