In this topic: http://www.gamedev.net/community/forums/topic.asp?topic_id=277004 MrEvil was looking for a TAB108 Lexibook API. I can't reply to him in the original topic, so I will do it here. I've made a small WWW research on lexibook TAB108. I knew it was made by GSPDA (www.gspda.com), but I was unable to find info about it on GSPDA page. Then I looked inside the RenewOS.app Operating System upgrade and saw a "V68E" symbol. Googling for it I found an old GSPDA page still in Google's cache. I went to archive.org and found the original page. Lexibook TAB108 is GSPDA V68E. It is based on the TMP91C025 CPU, a Toshiba TLCS-900/L1 Series. The original GSPDA page (stored at web.archive.org), http://web.archive.org/web/20030216105618/http://www.gspda.com/v68e8.html had a link for "API", but it was directed to a "under construction" page. A newer version of this page lacks that link. I've looked inside Toshiba. If this device uses the standard Toshiba Real-Time OS for TLCS-900/L1, it could be programmed with the Toshiba tools. Some of them (Toshiba CASE TOOL) can be downloaded for a trial time. http://www.semicon.toshiba.co.jp/eng/prd/micro/mctool/micdev_top.html (look for 900/L1 tools) There seems to be no open source C compiler for TLCS-900, but there is a cross-assembler, ASL, you can run under DOS, OS/2 or Linux. That's all I've found, although I'm sure there should be many other low-end palm devices based on this GSPDA reference. EDIT: Although I've found no C compiler for this system, a guy was trying to do it about November, 2000: http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/2000-11/msg00707.html

Additional info: There were a couple of devices called E-GO500 and E-GO800 whose programs use an object code very similar to that of lexibook TAB100 series.


I've sent an email to a guy who posted an usenet article about "TLCS-900/L1 PDA":

Jan, 7 edit: The following international pages still have the V68 in their catalogs:
Oswin technology (former GSPDA singapore): http://www.gst.com.sg
GSPDA china: http://www.gspda.com.cn
The V68/V68i devices at GSPDA china are very similar to TAB108, but they don't seem to be 100% compatible with it.
