The way I see it, if you are using CodeWarrior, you essentially have two choices in creating a new Palm programming project: Create one from scratch from an empty project, or use one of the predefined Palm OS project types, which are called stationery by the folks at Metrowerks. The latter sounds like a sure winner, but in my experience, I’ve spent some unpleasant time fixing the undesirable side effects created by choosing these predefined projects as a template, so I now follow these steps to create a new project: 1.

System Management” is kind of a catch-all, covering error handling, alarms, events, system and application preferences, string management, and other miscellaneous areas. I highly recommend taking the time to walk through the tutorial. It is also a great idea to explore the source code for the built-in applications as well as the other examples.
