I think their web site (at one time, at least) explicitly said they
had stopped development of Pippy.  I use it on rare occasions when I
need a programmable calculator.  But since it only supports 32-bit
integer math, i.e., not float or long, that's a pretty limited
occasion.  It appears to have access to Palm "form" capabilities, but
I was never able to figure out how they work.  The docs are a little
light.  Still, I'm impressed that they got it there in the first
place.  I also saw the Lua port, but have not installed it, yet.  I
was too busy with Carmen Electra.  Or, at least, envisioning Carmen
Electra.  ;-)
