General DataBase, English/German translations, programmer's reference

I'm using the general DataBase application to keep track of users who have registered my VR and FCL shareware programs. This enables me to quickly provide users with registration serial codes. I also have DataBase files to organize photos, TV channel frequencies, books, etc.

I also use Langenscheidt's German/English dictionary for DOS on my HP 100LX It is small (about 1.2MB for both German/English and English/ German modules) and works very well - I have it installed in AppManager with a memory requirement of 150K. The Palmtop makes it available at the touch of a few keys. (While both translation directions are included in the program, the manual is in German)

As a programmer, I need technical reference material a lot. I'm using the ExpertHelp Hypertext system on my 100LX to access existing databases in the "Norton Guide" format. (The Norton Guides from Symantec is a hypertext program making available volumes of cross-referenced information to programmers. ExpertHelp can read Norton Guide data files.) It should also work on the 200LX. However, even though it is a TSR program, it cannot pop up over System Manager. It must be installed in non-TSR mode in AppManager or used in non-TSR or TSR mode with System Manager terminated or from System Manager's DOS shell. ExpertHelp may even work on the 95LX from DOS, although I have never tried it.

I have guides for 80x86 assembly programming, Borland and Microsoft C, the CXL library, 'Interrupts and Ports,' 'Programmers Reference,' etc. I also regularly update the Norton Guide for PAL, the 'Palmtop Application Library' project that is being carried out in section 15.
