DOC - (Pilot standard text document) file format SYNOPSIS
struct doc_record0 { /* 16 bytes total */ Word version; /* 1 = plain text, 2 = compressed text */ Word reserved1; DWord doc_size; /* uncompressed size in bytes */ Word num_recs; /* not counting itself */ Word rec_size; /* in bytes: usually 4096 (4K) */ DWord reserved2; }; DESCRIPTION
The Doc file format is the standard text document format used by all models of the Palm Pilot. A Doc file is a pdb(4) file: this manual page describes only those aspects specific to Doc files. A Doc file consists of 0 to num_recs records; record 0 is the header for the document. (This header is distinct from the pdb(4) header.) The remaining records contain text, either plain or compressed depending upon version. Word Sizes In the synopsis above, the types ``Word'' and ``DWord'' are used just as in the Pilot headers. The type ``Word'' is 16 bits; the type ``DWord'' is 32 bits. Both are in big-endian format. Compression Format A character ``c'' in a compressed record is in one of four classes: 01-08 Copy ``c'' bytes 00,09-7F Self 80-BF Sequence C0-FF A space plus the ASCII character ``c ^ 0x80'' SEE ALSO

PDB - (Pilot Database) file format SYNOPSIS
#define dmDBNameLength 32/* 31 chars + 1 null terminator */ struct pdb_header { /* 78 bytes total */ char name[ dmDBNameLength ]; Word attributes; Word version; DWord create_time; DWord modify_time; DWord backup_time; DWord modificationNumber; DWord appInfoID; DWord sortInfoID; char type[4]; char creator[4]; DWord id_seed; DWord nextRecordList; Word numRecords; }; struct pdb_rec_header { /* 8 bytes total */ DWord offset; struct { int delete : 1; int dirty : 1; int busy : 1; int secret : 1; int category : 4; } attributes; char uniqueID[3]; } DESCRIPTION
The PDB (Pilot Database) file format is used by all models of the Palm Pilot and IBM Workpad. The format consists of a header followed by a set of record headers followed by the records themselves. Word Sizes In the SYNOPSIS above, the types ``Byte,'' ``Word,'' and ``DWord'' are used just as in the Pilot headers. The type ``Byte'' is 8 bits; ``Word'' is 16 bits; ``DWord'' is 32 bits. The latter two are in big-endian format. CAVEATS
1. The C structures given in the SYNOPSIS above are illustrative and most likely will not work in actual C code since compilers align data members on word boundaries. 2. The PDB file format presented here is not official and was written at the time when PDB file format was not public. It is possibly out- dated. The official standard is available on the Palm web page.
