This tool is designed for every one, who likes read EBooks on
his Palm computer. It aims to do three very simple
but bit annoying things:
You need just to plug your device in and press "HotSync" button, if you
are lucky enough.
- downloads file from Internet library
- converts it from Fiction
Book, HTML or text format to Ztxt
Palm pdb file
- installs it on your handheld computer
Unfortunately, you have to use command line to have all that magic
done for you.
Some one will ask me: "Why have not you done it by one mouse click in
My answer is - it's possible. You can make a ActiveX form
provided jar and register it in your IE. Ups! Sometimes IE hangs. I
accept that it's probably my fault, but I don't want to spend many hours
to fix it. I'd prefer to read couple books more.
"Fire Fox" - we like it. But you need to write an extension and deal
with security policies to be able to install files directly to the
Palm. If you know how to do that, please help this project.
