Creating a Bound Copy of POSE

Another convenient feature of POSE is the ability to create what is referred to as a "bound emulator." What this means is that you can take any POSE session and instruct POSE to build a self-contained executable program that consists of POSE itself, along with your selected ROM and configured settings, and any programs you installed. Once created, the bound emulator, in the form of an executable (.exe) file, can be distributed to others and run as a standalone version of POSE, without the recipient needing to obtain a full copy of POSE or a Palm OS ROM.

This is a handy way to give others a demonstration version of your application; I've used it several times as a convenience for clients and customers who might otherwise have needed to install my programs on their Palm devices in order to understand how they work.

As with other POSE features, this one is just a right-mouse click away, by choosing Save Bound Emulator. Simply choose a name for the bound emulator session, and you will have a distributable version of POSE complete with your program running in it.
