Important peice of palm programming information that probably should be in the FAQ

Recommended Posts

Well I'm seeing quite a few threads asking for palm programming resources. It seems to be hidden from mass knowledge but plua makes palm programming so easy it's funny. As an example here's a sample program(taken from here) that moves an image of a taxi across the screen:
-- Taxi.lua
-- Copyright (c) 2001 Marcio M. Andrade

-- Shows the Taxi easter egg.

width,height,depth,hasColor = pmode()

if hasColor == 1 then
  bg = prgb(0,255,0)
else
  bg = prgb(255,255,255)
end

pcolor(prgb(0,0,0),bg)
pclear()

taxi = popenres("Tbmp", 11000)
size, taxiWidth, taxiHeight = pgetsize(taxi)

y = (height-taxiHeight)/2

for x = width,-taxiWidth,-1 do
  pmoveto(x,y)
  pdrawbmp(taxi)
  pbox(x+taxiWidth-7, y, 7, taxiHeight, bg)
end

pcloseres(taxi)

don't see things getting much easier for free.
