Newton Resources by Christopher Rath
I purchased an Apple Newton in 1996. Iím extremely pleased with it
and I have created a few items which may be of interest to other
Newton owners; so, I have made them available here. They are all
offered without warrantee.
Newton Contacts to NEXTSTEP Addresses Converter
This is a Perl script that takes addresses exported from the Newton
in comma separated value (CSV) format and converts them into the ASCII
file format used by NEXTSTEP 3.3ís Addresses application.
These scripts are based upon my Perl CSV module. Click here to download the .zip file.
While I am happy with the Newton itself, I am less than satisfied with
the cases and holders currently on the market. So, I created my own. I
call it the NewtTimer. More
information (and pictures) can be found by following the NewtTimer link.
Early in the life of my NOS 1.3 based MessagePad 120, I purchased
DynoNotepad. I made extensive use of its outline facility, taking 250K
of notes before upgrading to NOS 2.0. NOS 2.0ís outline facility
meant I didnít need to use DynoNotepad; which was a good thing
because DynoNotepad wouldnít run under NOS 2.0.
Until recently, I had been waiting (in vain) for a commercial
converter for DynoNotepad; because it wouldnít run, I could no
longer read those old notes I had taken. A couple of weekends ago I
broke down and wrote just such a converter. Follow the DynoNotepad Converter link, for
