I came across an old emulator (2002) from Palm themselves, called simply "PalmOS Emulator".

This link is in the comments part of the exe.

The emulator has its own "artwork" of each type of machine.

I don't know when these machines were made, or if they're still being sold or not, so if it's too early that's OK.

There are several emulators of at least the early 68000-based Palms around. The 680x0 ones are dead, the newest ones run on an ARM.

That'd be fun. Especially if you could make MESS route information to a dirtual port. (yes, it would be nearly useless, but I have special reasons I'd like to be able to sync MESS to Palm Desktop)...

Funny - I have to wonder if that could be possible with Aaron's newest I/O changes.

Oh wow, I hadn't thought about that I/O stuff in connection with MESS, I bet one could do all kinds of nifty hacks with serial ports and printers and whatnot. I'm going to have to look into that....

I don't know that I'd try and shove 19.2 kbps through the Win32 message queue, but slow serial stuff might work :-)

i wanted to ask the same: will the new aaron implementation be useful to unify the way mess treat printers and other output devices?

Again, I don't think his specific implementation is going to be fast enough for serial but the general idea is a good one. In SDL* I'm going to route it to TCP/IP instead, which is both more flexible (the listener program can be elsewhere on your LAN, or even over the Internet) and can defnitely handle the thruput.
