 [1/2] from: rryost::cox::net at: 8-Sep-2003 15:34

I have a couple of REBOL board game scripts that I'd like to use for Palm OS applications. I don't think REBOL is available for the Palm OS, so I'm thinking of implementing the games using Pascal. The games use numerous Objects, and Pascal seems to offer similar structures? Has anyone tried this? Palm recommends Winsoft's PocketStudio for this. Anyone know anything about it? Thanks in advance, from an old time REBOLer - been inactive for a few years! Russell [rryost--cox--net]

Hi Russell. Great to see that you are still on the list. I've used PocketStudio extensively, before Pocket Technologies went out of business. PocketStudio is now marketed by the Slovakian company WinSoft located here: (not to be confused with the US company whose Web site is here ). PocketStudio supports Pascal, which is NOT an object oriented language. The closest you get to objects are records, the Pascal equivalent of C structs. I believe that Pascal records are close enough to REBOL objects. You can easily use Procedure and Function name prefixes to emulate methods in objects. I enjoyed using PocketStudio, which I found to be a very comfortable and product development tool for Palm. All the best, Elan Russell Yost wrote:
