You think it'd be baked by some programming student with extra time on his hands, but I've searched and searched, but simply haven't found a program that will let my HP48G's IR port talk to my Palm Pilot. Why would I want such a thing? Why, to enable both to talk to my Lego RCX, of course.

       Emulate the HP on the PDA? Emulate them both with Legos?

       Unless you intend on programming your Lego slave to fetch beers and chicken legs from the fridge for you, I see no practical purpose for this technology.

       Take this to slashdot.org they can probably give you an answer, better tell them you want run linux on the lego though.   

       Should be quite doable as the HP has a fairly configurable interface, I've heard of people getting them to work as remotes.

       No emulation desired; just a cross-port translator for dumping of variables and programs. [Ph.D], I've already used the remote program.
