SharpPDB - PalmOS pdb file reader/writer
All Resource Updates
Change History (all pages)
About a year ego I needed to sync between an application I had on my PC to an application on my Palm device and so I've written a library in C# that can read and write pdb (palm database) files.
Like many other projects I forgot about it and left it half complete. A few days ago I stumbled upon my old C# project directory and found it again. It seems a shame to loose code I've worked on and that could benefit my follow coders.
The PDB is combined from fourlogical part:
Header that describe the file properties and attributes.
Record list that defines the structure of the raw data.
Raw data block.
SortInfo and AppInfo blocks
In my code you can see the following:
PDBFile - class that represents an actual pdb file.
PDBHeader - has all header related information.
RecordList - contains all record related information and a collection of RecordEntry that contains the raw data information.
SortInfo & AppInfo - should have hold that information but I haven't implemented them yet.
