NAME

pdbdump - Print the contents of a Palm PDB file

VERSION

This document describes version 1.400 of main, released March 7, 2015 as part of Palm-PDB version 1.400.

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.

SEE ALSO

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT

main requires no configuration files or environment variables.

INCOMPATIBILITIES

None reported.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

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