The port of Python to the Palm Pilot was developed by Jeff Collins and Michael M. Gorlick of The Aerospace Corporation.
This port of Python 1.5.2+ was developed for PalmOS 3.0 or later.

To reduce the size of the implementation, several features were eliminated from this distribution including: float and complex numbers, file IO (standard in, out, and error are simulated), documentation strings, the parser and compiler, Python library modules, and extension modules.
The Python interpreter occupies 173 KB and will execute the standard regression test suite in less than 64 KB of heap space.
