Hi everyone.. here are some comments on SyncMemo 1.01 and some fixes that
will be in the upcoming 1.02 version.
1- Location of memos. The correct spot to put your memos in 1.01 is
In retrospect the second spot probably would have been a better choice,
but that's not what I did.. :)
So to make sure SyncMemo finds your files do something like this:
mkdir Personal (Business, etc...)
cp /path/memofile Personal
** 1.02 FIXES **
The Memos directory is customizable in 1.02. So you can put your memos
wherever you want. For example:
cp /path/memofile ~/Memos/Personal
Then you can configure SyncMemo to use "~/Memos" as your memo directory.
Also, you shouldn't see those "cat: cannot open 0" message anymore. If
there is a problem you should see "No memo files found." in the
PilotManager messages window.
2- which sum. Thanks to Dave Kaffine for pointing out this one..
SyncMemo 1.01 will NOT work if /usr/ucb/sum is in your path before
/usr/bin/sum. If you type "which sum" and the answer is "/usr/ucb/sum" you
need to edit SyncMemo.pm line 242:
`find SyncMemo -type f -print | egrep -v "SyncMemo/[^/]*\$" | xargs sum`)
and supply the path to sum:
`find SyncMemo -type f -print | egrep -v "SyncMemo/[^/]*\$" | xargs /usr/bin/sum`)
** 1.02 FIXES **
The change shown above will be applied in 1.02 so you won't have to do this
3- Pilot->Sun. SyncMemo still doesn't transfer memos from the pilot to your
sun. Hopefully I'll get that into 1.03... :)
Thanks for all your feedback! If you have any ideas for additional features
you'd like, just let me know...
