NAME ^

Palm - Palm OS utility functions

VERSION ^

This document describes version 1.014 of Palm, released August 2, 2014 as part of Palm version 1.014.

SYNOPSIS ^

DESCRIPTION ^

FUNCTIONS ^

palm2epoch

        my @parts = localtime( palm2epoch($palmtime) );

Converts a Palm OS timestamp to a Unix Epoch time. Note, however, that Palm OS time is in the timezone of the Palm itself while Epoch is defined to be in the GMT timezone. Further conversion may be necessary.

epoch2palm

        my $palmtime = epoch2palm( time() );

Converts Unix epoch time to Palm OS time.

mkpdbname

        $PDB->Write( mkpdbname($PDB->{name}) );

Convert a Palm OS database name to a 7-bit ASCII representation. Native Palm database names can be found in ISO-8859-1 encoding. This encoding isn't going to generate the most portable of filenames and, in particular, ColdSync databases use this representation.

SEE ALSO ^

Palm::PDB

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT ^

Palm requires no configuration files or environment variables.

INCOMPATIBILITIES ^

None reported.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS ^

No bugs have been reported.
