NAME
       Palm::Raw - Handler for "raw" Palm databases

VERSION
       This document describes version 1.400 of Palm::Raw, released March 7,
       2015 as part of Palm-PDB version 1.400.

SYNOPSIS
           use Palm::Raw;

       For standalone programs.

           use Palm::Raw();
           @ISA = qw( Palm::Raw );

       For Palm::PDB helper modules.

DESCRIPTION
       The Raw PDB handler is a helper class for the Palm::PDB package. It is
       intended as a generic handler for any database, or as a fallback
       default handler.

       If you have a standalone program and want it to be able to parse any
       type of database, use

           use Palm::Raw;

       If you are using Palm::Raw as a parent class for your own database
       handler, use

           use Palm::Raw();

       If you omit the parentheses, Palm::Raw will register itself as the
       default handler for all databases, which is probably not what you want.

       The Raw handler does no processing on the database whatsoever. The
       AppInfo block, sort block, records and resources are simply strings,
       raw data from the database.

       By default, the Raw handler only handles record databases (.pdb files).
       If you want it to handle resource databases (.prc files) as well, you
       need to call

           &Palm::PDB::RegisterPRCHandlers("Palm::Raw", "");

       in your script.

   AppInfo block
           $pdb->{appinfo}

       This is a scalar, the raw data of the AppInfo block.

   Sort block
           $pdb->{sort}

       This is a scalar, the raw data of the sort block.

   Records
           @{$pdb->{records}Z<>};

       Each element in the "records" array is a reference-to-hash. In addition
       to the standard keys ("attributes", "category", and "id"), this hash
       contains the key "data"; its value is a string with the raw record
       data.

   Resources
           @{$pdb->{resources}Z<>};

       Each element in the "resources" array is a reference-to-hash. In
       addition to the standard keys ("type" and "id"), it contains the key
       "data"; its value is a string with the raw resource data.
