Projects / psiconv


Psiconv is a file conversion utility that converts between Psion 5(MX) files and more commonly-used Linux file formats. It can read and write Psion Word, TextEd, Sketch, MBM, and Clipart files, and outputs HTML 3.2, HTML 4, ASCII, and almost any graphical format. The libpsiconv library can also read Sheet files for use in other programs. Included is full documentation on several Psion 5(MX) file formats. This information is not available from Psion (it has been reverse-engineered from Psion files), and it's free for anybody to use.
