This page really just lets you download a couple of programs that will
automatically extract selected memos from a jpilot .pdb, and put them up
on the web as html pages.
There are two versions here, though unless you're very curious, you'll
only care about the fast one, which is
written in python and should have running time of O(m*log(m)+n*log(n)), not the slow one, which is written
in bash and should have running time of O(m*n).
This software is owned by The university of California, Irvine,
and is not distributed under
any version of the GPL. GPL is a fine series of licenses, but the owners of the software need it to be distributed under these terms.
To use the programs:
mkdir -p ~/.jpilot/web-extract/files
Save your chosen version of the script in
Download, build and install the par program, which
knows how to extract records from a .pdb
Locate your favorite text to html conversion program. I'm using
this one. Install whichever one you
like on your $PATH.
Set up a ~/.jpilot/web-extract/titles file, which should have the
titles of the palm memos you want on the web, one title per line.
You should be good to go after all that.
Some misc notes
The program will refuse to convert any memo that has a title less
than a certain minimum number of characters long, to deter a mishap
where suddenly -all- of your palm memos are on the internet, and in
google's cache, and in the wayback machine, and...
The program is hard coded to use Memo32DB.pdb, but that assumes
you have pedit32. If you want normal palm memos, use MemoDB.pdb
instead. It should be a one-string search-and-replace.
