Possible Enhancements to J-Pilot
Here are some thoughts about possible enhancements for J-Pilot.
- Convert pdb's and pc3's to SQLite. This makes it easier to analyze data according some criteria, e.g., find how many addresses have the same telephone numbers, how many entries in datebook contain the same substring, etc.
- Convert and transform pdb's and pc3's to Google GData (shut down or deprecated). The Google id, which is returned after transmitting data, is then possibly stored in pdb/pc3.
mmap()instead of all its
malloc()'s inside pilot-link and J-Pilot.
- When J-Pilot searches for strings in the case-insensitive case, then it copies all elements and uses
malloc()for each element, see routine
jp_strstr(). Instead, just use either
strcasestr()or a home-brewed
strstr()which takes care of case.
- Provide ncurses interfaces instead of Gtk. See for example calcurse.
- When searching for strings and then jumping to the result, it just shows the record, but it does not directly position the cursor to the string where it was found. In particular for memos this is a small nuisance.
