wikiz/about.png WikiZ is a simple Wiki software for Palm OS 5. Why do I have to write yet another Palm Wiki? The main reason is that Hangul, the Korean character system, is not recognized by most of Wiki programs currently available including PsLink and PalmWiki. What's wrong with Hangul? Well, PsLink and PalmWiki were developed by Japanese developers, so there is explicit support for a Japanese character encoding (SJIS). However, this prevents Korean users from reliably using Hangul, which uses another multi-byte encoding (mainly EUC-KR or CP949), so I decided to write my own Wiki. WikiZ does not assume any encoding, so it should be multi-byte safe as far as I can tell.


wikiz/1.png wikiz/2.png wikiz/3.png wikiz/4.png You can find WikiZ from within Prefs's Other category after installation. Setting is straightforward. WikiZ automatically searches for new and old versions of PIM databases, but you can still change the CreatorIDs of databases and corresponding applications from their default values. In the main screen, the following options are available:

wikiz/2.png WikiZ supports history by dragging across the silkscreen area. The following description is based on Z22.

WikiCase linking is supported as well as explicit tagging. You can define left and right tags for each application. The maximum length of the tag is 10 characters. You don't have to assign both tags. Let's see an example. wikiz/more_en.png For Address, the left tag is "Call " and the right tag is, yes, empty. What it means is that link words start with the "Call " string and end with ENTER or END OF TEXT, whichever comes first. This also applies to Todo's "Finish " tag. Now, you can create invisible links without any ugly special characters or whatsoever. Just cut your link words with ENTER. If you have a memo like this:

I have a weekly meeting
tomorrow, don't forget
to call Dr. Blah blah<ENTER>
and finish writing the last report!

tapping on "Dr. Blah blah" will take you to his contact info. Compare with the following memo:

I have a weekly meeting
tomorrow, don't forget
to call {Dr. Blah blah}
and finish <writing the last report!>

The default date tags are intentionally left empty for the automatic detection of system's date format (e.g., MM/DD/YY, YY-MM-DD). You don't need any tag for Calendar linking, but, still, you can assign its own tags. Automatic date format detection does not work if you have Date tags.

Address formats

Addr tags support the following formats (consecutive spaces are not allowed between two fields):

Date formats for Calendar and Tasks

The following additional date formats are also recognized if you use Date tags (e.g., "(", ")" in the following examples):

Nested tagging

You can create nested links within a link. This is really useful for more flexible record creation. In the following examples, "<" and ">" are Date tags, and "<-" and "->" are Todo tags.


WikiZ is freeware. USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISK!
