NS Basic/Palm 5.0 now available
Posted on 21-Jul-2005 11:44. | Tags Filed under: Software.



Major new features include an integrated debugger, code completion and new shared libraries, including support for Palm's new LifeDrive.

"The enhancements in NS Basic/Palm 5 will make it easier for developers to code and test their applications", said George Henne, President of NS BASIC Corporation. "The new LifeDrive library allows developers to easily add multimedia features to their applications for these devices."

The software comes in a Developers Edition for single users, and an Enterprise Edition, allowing unlimited developers at a single location. There are no runtime charges for applications created using NS Basic/Palm. Combo packs with NS Basic/CE, allowing development for Windows Mobile Pocket PC devices, are also available.

Upgrades for existing users start at US$49.95, while registered users who bought after 1 June 2005 will get the upgrade for free. Existing NS Basic programs are upwardly compatible with the new version.

Some of the new features in 5.0 include:

  • New Runtime Debugger.
  • Code Hints - see args to functions as you type.
  • Code Completion - see members of objects as you type.
  • Auto Indent - code automatically indents as you type.
