I have several Android devices, BUT, still Palm for what's important..
BTW, I use pTools 'case converter' to convert either emails or scraped
text from ALL UPPER CASE to Title Case, what can one use on Android to
convert arbitrary text

or Windows CE 5.0. See http://www.aceeca.com/ (The PDA32 unit looks
interesting. They claim to have Linux in development for it.)
They are also still relevant to the dwindling installed base of Palm users.
I spent a few days redoing the setup on a friend's old Tungsten E2,
which got unearthed as part of a massive apartment cleaning. A new
charging cable from a Chinese manufacturer got it to power up, and the
use of NVFS meant the old data was still there.
Next stop was hotsyncing with her Win7 laptop. Palm desktop 6.2
installed as expected, but Hotsync didn't happen because it's a 64 bit
machine and Palm's USB drivers are 32 bit. As it happens, Aceeca has
a beta 64 bit USB driver package that can be substituted, and once in
place, Hotsync worked. See
(Installing it required working through Windows Device Manager, so
it's not a project for a non-technical user.)
- I updated the group description based on your suggestions, here's the new
Peditors Forum started as a mailing list for general discussions among
users of pedit--a.k.a. "peditors"--and other applications by Paul Nevai
such as LapTopHack, pToolSet, superFinderHack, and printHack. pedit was a
family of powerful text editors for palmtop organizers running the Palm OS
As Palm OS is now largely obsolete, compatible devices are niche products,
and pedit is no longer maintained, this forum remains as a venue for the
community of former or current users, and those with fond memories of
pedit. It can also be helpful for anyone who uses a handheld computer to
organize their lives and data, continuing the "PDA" legacy started with
Palm OS and enhanced with the pedit family of tools.
