NS Basic/Palm tutorial

philpalm @ 2/5/2009 11:28:11 PM # Q
If you go to their page you will see several tutorials. One of them about bit maps is recently updated Jan 19,2009. I am not a programmer and I didn't see the usefulness of the two tutorials that I saw.

Nonetheless if you want to be challenged it would be worthwhile to investigate the tutorials before considering purchasing this toolkit for developing a program for Palm OS 5.
