by Toshiyuki Masui is a PalmOs
hack that allows you to use the memo database as hypertext data. It allows you to do Wiki-like navigation inside any text field; you can use WikiCase
, enclose the link text in square brackets, or any other delimiters that you choose; you can then tap your link and will be transported to the memo of that name, or a new blank memo if it doesn't exist. You can also configure it to double tap to activate the link.
It's active on text anywhere, so WikiCase
words in the Address Book, 3rd party programs, or anywhere will work if tapped (or double-tapped). PalmWiki
also transports you to a particular date in your Date Book when you tap on an appropriately-formatted date in a text field.
This is simply one of the most useful things I have ever used.
has written a PerlLanguage
script to pull PalmWiki
wiki pages out of the MemoDB.pdb file into HTML: http://www.flutterby.com/software/palmmemowiki/
In the download page it links to this file: binary (PRC) (palmwiki.lzh) How can I convert them in .PRC to install in my palm?
.lzh is an old, but still currently popular Japanese compression format, from the time when dos-based Zip and arj were popular. Google for LHA.EXE (freeware) to decompress, or use Win
For OS4 and below ("Hack"-able)
Has anyone successfully used PalmWiki
on a Tungsten E or other OS 5.2 Palm device? The software appears to work well except within the Memos application!
There, clicks and double clicks go unacknowledged (i.e., nothing happens). Any ideas? --ToddFoster?
I'm also getting the same problem on a Tungsten T3. --DanBoschi?
As far as I understand, because PalmWiki
is a HackMaster
hack, you can't use it on PalmOs
You don't understand far enough. :) PalmWiki
works fine on PalmOS 5 devices as well, just not as a hack. I've resolved the problems with PalmWiki
on the Tungsten E by modifying the source code to use a different creator ID for the Memos database (this has changed on the Tungsten) and recompiling. This now works fine on my Tungsten E. I've left some messages about this on the PalmWiki
BBS, and I've made available binaries with the modified creatorID here: http://cpbotha.net/files/palmwiki/
- Nice, I tried out wikipad, however it took some room and was not as easy to find out how to edit things, however this works great and in ALL apps on my 3xe :) and i changed links from [ and ] to ' and ' :) I also am making my memopad the main wiki or basically a category a wiki fully - ALSO i had to unhide memopad for it to work right with memopad - I use obfuscate for hiding ROM apps and such so thanks for the application nice work oh and I use YAHM for a hackmanager.
as released in 2004/02 supports PalmOS 5 devices and includes a way to set the editor to any application. -- CliffordCaoile
