    So, as the title says, I can't read .prc files on my palm pilot!

    I'm using iSilo to open .txt and .pdb files (it works fine thank you&#33 but all .prc files end up looking like code-lines with some text intertwined...
    I've tried to use other progs but to no avail... ( Cspotrun, recommended in the Bookworld FAQ won't even run on my palm! )

    Any leads? :'(

    edit: BTW, I'm using PalmOS v.5.2.1

    edit again: Or does someone know how to convert .prc files into .txt files?

    I don't know many people who have Palms and use ebooks. J'Pol is the only one I know of, he wrote a large post about them.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    I've tried to open them in my pc with some of the progs in your link, Livy, but these "code-lines" are still there!
    I've finally come to the conclusion that they were poorly made in the first place, and that I'd have to use the "find and replace" function of Word a lot if I really want to read them...
    Thanks anyway!
