parsing Palm databasesby morgon (Priest)
|on May 18, 2019 at 00:25 UTC||Need Help??|
morgon has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am a bit reluctant to ask this (as it sort of reveals how old I have become) but I finally retired my Palm about a year ago.
However I still want to hold on to some information stored on the device, so I am trying to parse the datebook and memo pdbs from a backup with perl.
Datebook seems to work, I can e.g. do this
And this produces something I can process further, however parsing memos does not work at all:
This simply dies with
"No handler defined for creator "PMem", type "DATA"
It's been years since I last tried to parse pdbs with perl and while I can (vaguely) remember that I've had issues in the past I cannot remember anything, so I am looking for a way to parse palm memo-databases in perl...
