    I guess this subject comes up from time to time, but my search of the web
    and newsgroup threads has gotten me confused on how difficult this might be.

    All I really want is one-way data communications from a PIC to a Palm III
    PDA. I simply want a way to transfer information from an EEPROM connected
    to a PIC, or send information received from a serial device (rs232) via a
    PIC, through to the Palm. The Palm, of course, would be running a terminal
    emulation program.

    I understand that a MCP2150 "wired to a PIC will communicate with a PC IRDA
    port the same as if it were wired". What does this mean? no (or little)
    additional programming?? Is there an application or project somewhere I can
    take a look at? I program using PicBasic Pro if it makes any difference.

    I have looked at the data sheets for the MCP2150 and 2155, but would like to
    see this in action.

    Thanks
    Jim
