Anyone know of a decent PalmOS programming tutorial?

I've found that my Palm works excellently as a desk clock when sitting in the cradle (which conviently charges it as well), and of course I'm now tempted to stuff other functionality in to it. Current mad plan is to rig it as a control program for XMPlay, but of course to do that I need to be able to program the thing, and the only turotial I've managed to find uses obsolete dev tools (which makes using the GUI samples rather hard).

That's generally because PalmOS is a dead platform. They've moved onto Win Mobile for new devices and have a Linux based OS (supposedly) in the pipeline for the new year.

Oh, I've got the official SDK for the Palm (both 68k and ARM variants) from a few years ago. It's just that the tutorial I found expects you to have tools that are even older, and Palm changed their GUI tool's file format somewhere inbetween.
