in thread parsing Palm databases

What seems to have happened is that Palm changed the Memo-DB format but it seems they never documented the new format which may explain why nobody incorporated these changes into Palm::Memo.

J-Pilot (though I have not tried it) seems to be able to handle it though - they must have reverse-engineered the format (it may be a nice exercise to use that for updating Palm::Memo)

But for me the workaround is to simply use Palm::Raw, I can live with what I can get with that, eg:

use Palm::PDB; use Palm::Raw; use Data::Dumper; my $pdb = new Palm::PDB; $pdb->Load("MemosDB-PMem.pdb"); print Dumper($pdb);
