palm-fe is personal information manager, very similar to functionality to the original Palm Pilot device.
it is fairly old project and if you have problems with installing and/or using it, contact me, I’ll help :)
unpack palm-fe3 package to a directory you want. in this example I’ll suppose this directory is my home: /home/cade. you’ll also need web directory where you will install visible parts of palm-fe3. I’ll use also my personal web dir: /home/cade/public_html/p3.
here are the commands required to install palm-fe with these parameters:
cd mkdir public_html/p3 tar xzvf palm-fe3-cvs-snapshot.tar.gz cd palm-fe3 cp pro/sample_index.cgi ~/public_html/p3/index.cgi chmod +x ~/public_html/p3/index.cgi cp -r themes ~/public_html/p3/edit ’data/passwd’ file and put accounts you want inside in this format:
account1=pass1 account2=pass2passwords are plaintext, there are no important reasons to encode them.
now you have to become ’root’
cd /home/cade/palm-fe3 chown -R nobody data(suppose ’nobody’ is the owner of the httpd process!)
go to httpd config and allow index.cgi scripts!
exit ’root’ account
cd /home/cade/public_html/p3edit index.cgi, remove all but these lines:
---begin--- #!/usr/bin/perl -I/home/cade/palm-fe3/pro use strict; use p3_main; print p3_main::main(); ---end---last 3 lines should be as shown but the first line is important! you MUST replace the path after -I with your actual palm-fe install dir.
at this point palm-fe should be ready. if you have problems first check httpd’s error_log file then you can contact me anytime at:

I’m sorry for the messy docs and code, I hope things will be cleared up in the future. this is development release!
