    you JUST started learning C, or have been?....... building a web server i think can be a bit complicated......and a web server run off a palm pilot seems kinda......useless to me...

    Yeah, I agree with SarinMage on this one. I can understand the value of learning C, or any language for that matter, in order to build apps. But why a webserver on a palm pilot?

    As for resources, I find this page to be helpful. At least I did...I haven't used it in a while. I apologize if there are any outdated links on it.

    I say go for it. Sure it would be useless but all the useful stuff has all ready been done. Building a webserver for the palm kind of reminds me of those guys who make linux run on the X-Box.
    Its not software piracy. I’m just making multiple off site backups.

    i agree with cwk9, go for it man. theres plenty of stuff out there thats made just to show it can be done or as a learning experiance. if programming is to be considered an art, then its art for art's sake.
