NAME

Palm::Raw - Handler for "raw" Palm databases.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    use Palm::Raw;



For standalone programs.



    use Palm::Raw();
    @ISA = qw( Palm::Raw );



For Palm::PDB helper modules.

DESCRIPTION

The Raw PDB handler is a helper class for the Palm::PDB package. It is intended as a generic handler for any database, or as a fallback default handler.

If you have a standalone program and want it to be able to parse any type of database, use



    use Palm::Raw;



If you are using Palm::Raw as a parent class for your own database handler, use



    use Palm::Raw();



If you omit the parentheses, Palm::Raw will register itself as the default handler for all databases, which is probably not what you want.

The Raw handler does no processing on the database whatsoever. The AppInfo block, sort block, records and resources are simply strings, raw data from the database.

By default, the Raw handler only handles record databases (.pdb files). If you want it to handle resource databases (.prc files) as well, you need to call



    &Palm::PDB::RegisterPRCHandlers("Palm::Raw", "");



in your script.

    AppInfo block



    $pdb->{appinfo}



This is a scalar, the raw data of the AppInfo block.

    Sort block



    $pdb->{sort}



This is a scalar, the raw data of the sort block.

    Records



    @{$pdb->{records}};



Each element in the records array is a scalar, the raw data of that record.

    Resources



    @{$pdb->{resources}};



Each element in the resources array is a scalar, the raw data of that resource.
