    I want to write apps(games particularly) for my treo600 and would like a list of tools that'll allow me to code and compile directly on my treo.

    Hi,

    Try PP:
    http://ppcompiler.free.fr/?lng=en

    What is PP ? : PP is a freeware standard Pascal compiler for PalmOS that runs directly on the handheld. PP generates true native 68000 and ARM executable code from standard Pascal source code. Console applications, standard Palm applications, shared libraries, DA's, armlets may be generated on board in the train, while waiting the bus, while fishing, on the beach, or wherever you are.

    I just checked out the site and it seems to be great. now the question is: how great can the games be designed using PP? I don't want to be stuck creating monocolored snakes chasing balls through mazes. lol. I want sound, color, intense graphics, the works. is this even possible using tools exclusively on the treo?

    Well....it depends on you. There is some great tools to edit/create resources (bitmaps, sounds,...) on the device, but I think that it will be far more easy to build them on a PC...Anyway, it's doable to create great bitmaps and sounds on the device itself. I can't recommend you such or such tool for the onboard resource edition as I do it on Pc, and use them with my own compiler but I'm sure that the PP forums will be a great help for you.

    There is also:

    OnboardC: http://onboardc.sourceforge.net/
    LispMe: http://www.lispme.de

    I've only ever tinkered with either so can't offer a fair comparison. Anyone else?

    I've written several succesful applications using Quartus Forth (although the OS5 version is currently still in beta, but it's not a problem because I can do all my final compiling on the desktop emulator). There is a great support group there as well. see www.quartus.net
