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.
- -h -help --help
- Print a usage message and exit.
- Don't print the hex dump of the various parts.
- "use" the named module. This can be useful for loading additional helper modules.
BUGS"pdbdump" only recognizes record databases (".pdb" files), not resource databases (".prc" files).
