If you felt like digging through a lot of hex, it's possible to do this
yourself. I recently implemented this sort of thing in a 4GL, painfully
enough, so it's possible. The real problem is that the Palm export format
is the result of serialized MFC, which isn't documented in the least
(presumably because if you wanted to create or read that format, you'd just
use MFC). The downfall to this at this point is that while it may work
today, microsoft could break your convertor at a later date. Just
something you have to keep on top of.
