Applications / Drivers

  • p2z - Palm to Zaurus conversion tool
  • strip2zsafe - Strip to ZSafe conversion tool
  • Garux: a Linux bootloader for the Palm OS
  • pilot2kabc is a combination of a shell- and an awk-script to convert the address database (Address.pdb) from a Palm Pilot into a format that kabc (kaddressbook) can handle. It is one way i.e. you can only convert the Palm database into the kabc format but you cannot merge back changes made in kabc.
  • PalmDisplay - User your old Palm PDA as a Display on your Linux Box etc.
  • PalmOrb is software that allows you to use your PalmOS device as a LCD status display for your computer! You can display system stats (such as: CPU load graphs, CPU temperatures, free disk space), news alerts, stock indexes, WinAmp graphs, etc.
  • palmfs is a PalmOS filesystem access software for Linux, based on FUSE. It consists of two parts, a client and a server. The client is a FUSE-based application running on the Linux system. The server part is a PalmOS application that actually executes commands sent by the client. It is intented to support various communication ports and to access the PalmOS internal filesystem as well as expansion cards.
  • PilotManager is a tool that allows you to synchronize databases on your 3Com PalmPilot with applications on your Unix platform. It is a full Hotsync daemon that is user extensible. Developers can write their own conduits to synchronize Pilot databases with the desktop application of their choice.
  • trainsched for Palm Pilot displays train schedules in an easy-to- read format. The included converter converts the schedules from a CSV format to the PDB file format used in Palm OS.
  • XML-QOFQSF is a Perl module to convert personal data to and from QSF XML files. pilot-qof objects (pilot_address, pilot_expenses, pilot_datebook and pilot_todo) are supported. gpe-expenses is also supported.
  • Pilot-QOF converts Palm databases to queriable objects. A Palm database record is an instance of the object, called an Entity. Objects are collated to form one data source, called books, that can contain any number of different objects - depending on the application running QOF. Pilot-QOF writes selected palm data to QSF XML offline storage and running SQL-type queries on the live data or XML file.
