NS Basic/Palm 4.0 released
NS BASIC Corporation announced availability of NS Basic/Palm 4.0. Major new features include improved shared library/API function support and much closer ties to POSE and the Palm OS Simulator. There is also support for Pocket Purchase, an e-commerce plug in, and enhancements for OS 5 devices, such as PalmOne's Tungsten T3.

"The enhancements in NS Basic 4.0 will make it easier for developers to build, test and sell their applications", said George Henne, President of NS BASIC Corporation. "The enhanced POSE and Simulator support means that users will be able to develop and test right out of the box, without needing to download anything else or having a Palm OS device."

The new version is available for US$149.95. Upgrades for existing users start at US$49.95. Customers who bought after 1 October 2003 will get the upgrade for free. Existing NS Basic programs are upwardly compatible with the new version. The 146 page handbook has been updated with the new features.

NS Basic allows developers who have used tools like Visual Basic to rapidly develop applications for Palm OS 5 based and earlier devices. NS Basic is a complete, powerful development environment for Palm OS applications. The software includes features such as databases, serial and IR communications, signature capture, bar code reading, wireless communications and more.

Here is what has been added in 4.0:

  • Shared library support greatly enhanced.
    a. .INF format enhanced to contain variable type info.
    b. Up to 50 args now allowed on shared lib and API calls.
    c. No need to preallocate string for return values
