Handwriting Recognition possible on the HP Palmtop?

Handwriting Recognition possible on the HP Palmtop?

What is the basis for using the screen (of an HP Palmtop) for handwriting recognition? Is there a handwriting recognition program available for the 95/100LX or is it beyond the current capability. (I would like the ability to sketch diagrams, etc.)

Chandler CompuServe ID: [76440,3006]

[The screens on the HP Palmtops do not have the touch sensitive circuitry to sense writing on it and convert that to electronic data. So there is no way the HP palmtops could accept handwriting input except from something like a digitizing tablet connected through the serial port. In addition, the processor in these Palmtops is not powerful enough to do the extensive calculations required by any kind of handwriting recognition algorithms. The DOS and all of the internal programs are designed for getting keystrokes from the keyboard -Stanley Dobrowski 71031,2162.]
