BUDDY.ZIP -- Buddy 2.1a is a feature-rich utility for the HP 100/200LX Palmtops (English-language displays only) that adds dozens of keystroke shortcuts and other options to the built-in applications, making it easier to use. Buddy's features include:

  • Highlight data file in FILER and press (ENTER) twice to start the appropriate application and load the file.
  • Double-click a letter or keypad key to obtain its shifted value, instead of having to hold down the Shift key.
  • SmartCaps automatically and appropriately produces uppercase letters as you type text. (Capitalizes umlauts and accented characters and is not confused by abbreviations.)
  • Adds many features to Memo, including change case, swap characters, repeat previous edit, mark current line, return to marked line, save find string, recall find string, and automatic indent.
  • Adds user password logic that lets you specify that password be required whenever the power is turned on, or only if the machine has been off for longer than a specified period of time.
  • Set up separate macro files for each application and automatically changes macro files when application started. Lets you run a specific macro automatically at startup.
  • Provides visual warnings in Filer when battery usage timer or voltage sensor reach specified values.
  • Displays your power source, main battery voltage, battery usage timer, and power-off timer values on the Filer display.
  • WorldTime map overlay displays the day/night terminator plus any great circle route on the WorldTime map (registered copies only).
  • Makes the CTRL and/or the ALT key "sticky," and changes the shift-lock function to work more like a standard typewriter.
  • Adds 10 user-specified labels to your function keys so you can easily remember which key invokes which macro.
