ITworld.com has a story about doing just that. "There are other ways a Palm Pilot terminal can help you work
or get you out of a jam. I imagine it could really come in handy
as a debugging tool, especially if you're building a full-screen
graphical application. You can redirect various types of error
or debugging messages to your Palm terminal while you
develop your application. Your Palm instantly takes on the role
of a second monitor."
