Weasel Reader is an e-text reader for Palm OS. It is geared towards reading Project Gutenberg e-texts, but will work on any ASCII file. It uses zlib for compression, resulting in good file sizes, an important consideration for Palms. Weasel reads both zTXT (its own format) and PalmDoc files. It includes features such as bookmarks, annotations, categorization, searching, beaming, VFS access, and many display options. Also included is makeztxt, a command line program to generate zTXT databases. makeztxt supports regular expressions to automatically generate a list of bookmarks. Java and Perl/PHP versions of makeztxt are also available.
The pilot-link suite of tools contains a robust library and a series of conduits for moving information between your desktop or workstation and your Palm handheld device, such as those made by Palm, Sony, Handspring, Handera, and others. It also includes language bindings for languages such as Perl, Python, and Java.
SyncML is the common language for synchronizing all devices and applications over any network. SyncML leverages eXtensible Markup Language (XML), making SyncML a truly future-proof platform. With SyncML, networked information can be synchronized with any mobile device, and mobile information can be synchronized with any networked applications. SyncML is an open standard.
PalmOrb is software that allows you to use your PalmOS device as an LCD status display for your computer. You can display system stats (such as CPU load graphs, CPU temperatures, free disk space), news alerts, stock indexes, WinAmp graphs, etc. It works by pretending to be (or emulating) a real LCD (a Matrix Orbital LK204-25). You can use existing software that expects a Matrix Orbital display.
f/Calc is a utility to calculate lens formulae for photographers so you can focus on the artistic bits rather than on the mathematics behind it all. f/Calc can do "f" number arithmetic, and can calculate depth of field, hyperfocal distance, the field of view of a lens, the angle of view of a lens, magnification, and how the focal length of the lens on the camera changes the way the spot metering function works. In addition to the Unix/Linux Tcl/Tk version, there are native Windows, Palm OS, and Macintosh versions as well.
PalmFontConv is a collection of command-line utilities to manipulate Palm fonts in both v1 and v2 formats. Currently, there is a converter that converts between afnx, nfnt (low, high, or both densities), NFNT, and text editable formats, and another converter that converts Type 1/TrueType/BDF/PCF and other formats supported by FreeType2 into the text editable format, code for generating Plucker and PalmBible+ compatible anti-aliased fonts. There are also a bunch of GUI shells for generating font packages for Plucker, PalmBible+, Fonts4OS5, and FontSubst.
