I am using the prc-tools RPM for RedHat 5.2 at*.

Check out for some
newer versions of some utilities like pilrc and a compuiled version of the
UNIX version of the PalmOS Emulator. 

According to developer of the alpha patch mentioned below, they will
submit to egcs after current push for gcc 2.95 is over.

Check out which is some GPL'ed Palm
Pilot software including a replacement for JFile/MobileDB. There is a
GPL'ed news reader for the Pilto called Yanoof (sp) somewhere. Check which is, IMHO, the best Palm Pilot software

There are some non-Usenet newsgroups on called
"pilot.programmer" and "pilot.programmer.gcc". Some Palm Computing people
even post there. 

Sounds like we need "" or something. :)
