Possible Enhancements to J-Pilot

Here are some thoughts about possible enhancements for J-Pilot.

  1. Convert pdb’s and pc3’s to sqlite. This makes it easier to analyze data according some criteria, e.g., find how many addresses have the same telephone numbers, how may entries in datebook contain the same substring, etc.
  2. Convert and transform pdb’s and pc3’s to Google GData. The Google id, which is returned after transmitting data, is then possibly stored in pdb/pc3.
  3. Use mmap() instead of all its fread() and malloc()‘s inside pilot-link and J-Pilot.
  4. When J-Pilot searches for strings in the case-insensitive case, then it copies all elements and uses malloc() for each element. Instead, just use a home-brewed strstr() which takes care of case.
  5. Provide ncurses interfaces instead of Gtk. See for example calcurse.
