Over the last couple of years while using Linux, I've slowly become better at what could loosely be described as "hacking".
I mainly focus on stuff that is Palm related, mainly trying to integrate some of the command line tools available for Linux->Palm connectivity with some well known Linux applications.
pilot-doc.el - An Emacs LISP extension
Along time ago I hacked together a LISP extension for Emacs with the help of a gentleman named "Patrick Campbell-Preston". To my surprise (and happiness) another gentleman named "Liam M. Healy" contributed a bug-fix to my pathetic attempt at programming! Must admit it was a buzz getting some code contributed to something I thought of!
I based all the code on another LISP extension that did something similar called pilot-memo.el.
Hence I called my version pilot-doc.el!
pilot-doc.el basically has got the same functionality as pilot-memo.el, but uses txt2pdbdoc and pilot-xfer from the Pilot-Link utilities to convert then transfer an Emacs buffer to the Palm as a Palm DOC file. Give it a go!!! Just copy & paste the contents of the pilot-doc.el file to your .emacs file somewhere in your /home/ directory (if the .emacs file doesn't exist then simply create one). To run pilot-doc.el simply type M-x (i.e the "Alt" key followed by the "x" key) followed by "save-buffer-to-pilotdoc" within an Emacs buffer. This will convert then transfer the current buffer to the Palm (as long as txt2pdbdoc is in your path like above). Very neat! : - ).

Thats all folks at the moment! If I come up with anything else I'II post it here.
