 I learned a bit of mIRC scripting back in the day and kind of get the
idea of what's needed and being done. I'm just having problems
connecting A to B.

I could hammer you with about 30?s but....I'll just start here and see
if I have a chance at this..

In Eclipse I see a folder/file structure.

There are 4 files which seem to need editing for an ?activity? to run
correctly. test.java, main.xml, strings.xml and AndroidManifest.xml.

How would you define these files
for instance: strings.xml - Appears to be a simple storage file for
strings used in the other files.

I thought I understood from the helloandroid tutorial that the
'activity' could be completely written using only the xml files, but I
keep finding I'm stumbling into the test.java file.

I'm sure half of what I stated above is incorrect and would appreciate
and corrections.

Thanks, Sonik.

 it depends on whether you are new to android AND java, or just new to
android...

1. Gmail and outlook

Hi,

Is there an application that links up your work Outlook (emails and
contacts) to HTC my touch G3 (T-mobile)? I need to keep my work emails
and contact separate from my personal gmail account.

Thanks in advance.

2. SDK r3 not working on Mac?

I just did this:

1) download sdk (android-sdk_r3-mac.zip)
 (good so far)
2) extract sdk (unzip android-sdk_r3-mac.zip)
 (yup, extracts all fine and dandy)
3) add sdk to path (export ANDROID_SDK_HOME, export PATH=${PATH}:$
{ANDROID_SDK_HOME}/tools )
 (ok, I can now execute any command, android, adb, etc)

4) try to run "android udpate sdk" as the Readme.txt says to:

android update sdk
No command line parameters provided, launching UI.
See 'android --help' for operations from the command line.

But nothing.  The UI doesn't come up.  Nothing happens.  But then, if
I run it with sudo, it now launches the UI.  What's going on?  Can I
please fix this, I don't want to run everything with sudo.

sudo android update sdk
No command line parameters provided, launching UI.
See 'android --help' for operations from the command line.
--- NOW THE UI POPS UP ---
