Programs



Librarian 0.5.2

This program allows you to manage a database of books. The interface is based on the address book built into the Palm. Features include a search and a copy function, and a perl based Librarian <-> CSV converter. Please note that the databases produced by this version are binary incompatible with versions 0.1.3 and lower - please remove Librarian from your Palm before installing this version.

The binary on this page is freeware, and the source code is availible under the GPL.

librarian.prc - the binary
librarian.tgz - the source code

Bugs: When running Gremlins (stress testers) under Pose (a PalmOS emulator), two types of crashes appear - one in the focussing and one in the scrolling code (I believe). I have been unable to reproduce them either on Pose (without the Gremlins) or my palm, and so have been unable to isolate the cause and fix the bugs. If you work out how to trigger them, please let me know.
Todo: logging past borrowing for books?.
Wish: a proper windows conduit.

Utilities 0.0.3

This program was written to solve mathematical problems I sometimes find I have, such as 'Is this number prime?', or 'What is the next number in the sequence where I multiply by three, subtract one and remove all factors of two'. The much more useful task it did was give me experience programming for PalmOS.

The binary on this page is freeware, and the source code is availible under the GPL.

Bugs: none known.
Todo: nothing really.
Wish: no wishes.
