if you find someting, plz tell me. I crave for FOAF on my palm.... 
I want Ubiquotous Semantic Web now !

there where some iCal scripts for PALM platform, I think to extract some
info from the databases of the Palm Desktop.

This is on PALM, too.

You may perhaps use the .NET API on a WindowsCE (just a guess)
there is a C# project:
http://www.daml.ri.cmu.edu/drive/
http://www.driverdf.org/

this is .NET also:

I also have this snippet from an email I found years ago, perhaps you
can google for more:


(for short: it means you cannot extract any info from the palm desktop
and its a painful task to do)

This functionality is currently not available in the SDK.
We attempted to get it in, but couldn't provide a solution
good enough to release to developers. If there was such
an API, what is the functionality you would like to see
in it?

The Generic conduit has code to read the .dat files.
It doesn't use MFC, so you don't have to worry about
MFC versions breaking your application.

The desktop formats haven't changed for a long time.
However, I can't comment on future changes. We would
definitely like to provide an API so that developers can
write code without worrying about data format changes
and the like.
