NAME ^

pdbdump - Print the contents of a Palm PDB file

SYNOPSIS ^

pdbdump [options] filename

DESCRIPTION ^

pdbdump reads a PalmOS .pdb file, parses it, and prints its contents. This includes both a hex dump of the raw data of each piece, and a human-readable list of the various values, insofar as possible. The aim of pdbdump is to allow one to verify whether a particular file is a well-formed PalmOS database file and if not, where the error lies.

If the database is of a known type, pdbdump parses the AppInfo block and records. Otherwise, it simply prints out a hex dump of their contents. pdbdump includes, by default, support for most of the built-in applications. Other helper modules may be loaded with the -M option.

OPTIONS ^

-h -help --help

Print a usage message and exit.

-nohex

Don't print the hex dump of the various parts.

-Mmodule

use the named module. This can be useful for loading additional helper modules.

BUGS ^

pdbdump only recognizes record databases (.pdb files), not resource databases (.prc files).

SEE ALSO ^

Palm::PDB(3)
