With Quartus Forth, you can:
- Write source code in the Memo Pad (or
optionally in Doc-format files), and compile your code instantly into
fast, genuine native-code Palm applications (PRCs) right on-board your
Palm OS handheld device. Your apps are transferred to the desktop the next time
you do a HotSync.
- Distribute (or sell— there are no restrictions) the apps you
create with no run-time libraries
needed, and no
- With the companion product Quartus RsrcEdit, produce apps with standard Palm GUI objects (menus, controls, lists, scroll bars, etc.)

- Use nearly 900 Palm OS system routines and over 6200 constants by
in your source code.
- See descriptive error text for Palm OS errors.
- Work in the language of your choice – compiler
messages are available in a number different languages including German,
French, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Russian, Norwegian, Swedish, and Malay.
