Pive - Palm Internals ViEwer.
This application was started as feature editor. Short after I started
the development, I decided that it would be logical to provide
also viewing and editing resources and records form Palm data
bases. At this stage I registered its name: Pive for
Palm Internals Viewer/Editor. Unfortunately,
I am too busy for implementing editing, and having viewer only is
safer. After all, the source code is available and you are
encouraged to make it better.
Pive was developed in Linux 2.4 using PRC-Tools 2.0.92, PalmOS SDK 4.0
and PalmOS Emulator v 3.4.b8.
Pive 1.0 was released in early February 2002. Palm 1.0.1 (March 2002) and 1.0.2 (March 2004) have minor bug fixes.
Pive is distributed under GNU General Public License (GPL).
How Pive works
Pive presents Palm data hierarchically, according to my philosophy on PalmOS
architecture (which to be honest is different from the one
used by PalmOS developers). It starts with the list of all creator IDs
available to the system. You can select a creator and get a list of all
features and data bases for it. Further on you can select a data
base in the DB list and get list of all its resources or records.
Finally, you select a resource/record and can view its content. That's
it. Pive also provides DB info form where you can see DB properties,
view App Info and SortInfo blocks.
Pive provides an online help, however it is not meant to teach
you PalmOS: preliminary PalmOS knowledge is expected.
System: PalmOS 2.0
