Hi Guenter and the list,

happy to report I've gotten Familiar 0.8.1 running on my IPAQ 5550 for a 
project I'm doing in conjuntion with STEIM:


I had a few questions/requests about using PDa:

1) The "PDa development environment" you mention on the PDa site, which 
you run on your desk/laptop to make PDa patches... when is that available?

2) What about externals? I'm particularly interested in your [shell] 
object, and also in using OSC on the IPAQ.

3) Is it normal that the GUI is messed up? In my case, "messed up" means 
that number boxes do not display anything, and when I create a new 
object, the name of that object gets typed in the upper-left corner of 
the screen and never appears within the graphical bounds of the object. 
Add more objects and the names just pile on top of each other.

Also, the file browser is messed up in that all the folder names also 
pile up in the upper left. Is it possible this is a TCL/TK error? I used 
the 8.4.9 versions you provided on your site, and downloaded and 
installed them manually (ipkg install tcl.blah.ipk tk.blah.ipk 
pda.blah.ipk) rather than through the ipkg src repository.

4) Any way to "right-click" objects in PDa for properties, etc? Or is 
that why the "development" version is so so handy?

Looking forward to further experiments!
