SFTextFile SFX for PalmOS
Sample Application
Sample Application

Version 1.5 Released March 6, 2006

NEW: Includes CardInsertHelper utility to handle memory card insertion and removal.

SFTextFile enables you to read and write standard text files on the Palm from your SatForms application. The text files can be stored in the Palm's internal memory or on an expansion memory card. As well, some additional utility functions are provided to delete, rename, or copy any files. In addition to the main function to read and write text files, SFTextFile also enables you to read and write binary files in conjunction with the Memory extension included with SatForms.

Some potential applications for SFTextFile include:

  • exporting data from your application to standard CSV text files
  • creating backup copies of important files or databases (including SatForms table databases) in internal memory or on an expansion card

Text files created in the Palm's internal memory are backed up to the PC at Hotsync by the standard backup conduit. There is a utility program included that will convert these backed up files (which are saved to the PC as PDB files) to standard PC text files. It will also take PC text files and convert them into "text PDB" files for loading back onto the Palm where they can be read and written to by the SFTextFile extension.

Text files stored on the expansion memory card can be transferred directly back and forth to a PC using a USB card reader, and there is no conversion necessary.

SFTextFile for PocketPC is also available.
