Guikachu is a GNOME resource editor for PalmOS.
If you are familiar with PalmOS development, you may have encountered one of the numerous resource editors running in the Windows or MacOS operating environments, and wished for a UNIX application that does the same, because it is your operating system of choice. Or maybe you've always created RCP files by hand and wondered if there's an easier and faster way.
Guikachu is a PalmOS resource editor that runs in the UNIX environment, using the GNOME desktop framework. At the time of writing this manual, Guikachu is the only PalmOS resource editor application for UNIX systems. If you've used Glade, a user interface editor for GNOME, the interface of Guikachu will look familiar.

You are not only allowed, but encouraged to look at the source code, give it away to your peers, friends and colleagues and modify it to your liking, as long as you grant these same rights to everyone else.
