PDBDUMP(1)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation	    PDBDUMP(1)

NAME
       pdbdump - Print the contents of a Palm PDB file

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.

OPTIONS
       -h -help	--help
	   Print a usage message and exit.

       -nohex
	   Don't print the hex dump of the various parts.

       -Mmodule
	   "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).
