PalmPilot Doodle Database to PCX files converter,
Note: this is a PC utility, not a Palm program!!!!
One of the simple programs I make sometimes might even be useful to other Palm users: my doo2pcx program. This program takes a Doodle .pdb database file as created by the Doodle drawing program (not made by me) for the PalmPilot and transferred to the PC using the normal HotSync. It converts this saved database file into multiple .pcx format files (16-color pcx, of which only black and white currently used). I selected 16-color pcx for its wide support by other programs, but mainly because I already had a .pcx writer function from other developments. On the right an example (although here I changed white for green to give a nice screen shot idea).
I've put this command in a batch file, so I can just double-click this under windows. The actual line in my batch file is:
Watch the double quotes around the <filename>, this is needed because there is a space in ' My Documents'. You can put a second line in your batch file with the command 'pause', this will make sure the window does not immediate disappear but let you read any error messages.
This is version v1.01, compiled with GCC/Mingw32 (see my C page). So finally a version which support long filenames. Also spaces may be in the name, as long as you put quotes around the file name. No other changes has been made sinve the previous version from 1998.
The program only has some rudimentary error checking and has limited possibilities, as for me it is only a quickly generated utility program. The PalmPilot is my input device, therefor no .pcx to .pdb processing. If you have any suggestions, let me know but I do not promise anything.
Error levels/messages returned:
Download DOO2PCX.EXE (6656 bytes) or download DOO2PCX.ZIP (3833 bytes, contains doo2pcx.exe and doo2pcx.txt). Doo2pcx is kind of shareware; costs are one E-mail for normal users, and for users making PalmPilot Shareware software one free registration to one of their products.
