ok....tried all of those software but they all failed....
I guess the pdb file I've got are in iSilo format, which is not PalmDoc.
Looks like there is no way to view them in Z at the moment.
Yes, the .pdb suffix is a generic one used for all PalmOS datafiles, whatever their actual format. (Applications use .prc, and confusingly PalmDoc files can actually be either.) iSilo has its own proprietary format, though it can also read Doc and text files. OpieReader claims to be able to read iSilo 3 files, but not the current 4.x format. If your iSilo files were created in iSiloX and you still have the original .ixl file, you might be able to reconstitute them in Plucker for use in OpieReader - but I haven't tried this myself.
opie-reader does more than "claim" to read iSilo3 files - it *does* read them. I was involved in the reverse engineering, with another friend who dislikes publicity.
We would have added iSilo4 if we had the time and the need. Since it was for a backward compatibility reason, there was no need. Since it took weeks only to add iSilo3 format, and iSilo4 was much more complicated, we didn't.
