Psiconv is a file conversion utility that converts between Psion 5(MX) files and more commonly-used Linux file formats.
The Psion 5(MX) has several built-in applications. They use their own file formats to save data files. Psion has written file conversion utilities for Windows 95, in the form of their PsiWin program.
But there are no conversion utilities for other operating systems. Psion also is not able to or does not want to release enough data for others to write their own conversion programs. At least, that is what I have gathered through the newsgroups and from other sources.
I have reverse engineered some of the Psion document formats, and have written a small conversion utility for some of them. I release the data format information to the public domain; the conversion utility is licensed by the GNU General Public License, which allows anyone to use it freely. Both are still being updated and refined.
The Psion 5MX uses mostly the same file formats as the Psion 5; the conversion utilities seem to work, though you might get a few additional warnings. I own a 5MX myself now, so this will improve. Other Psion PDA's might be supported too, and even other machines running EPOC32. The Psion Series 3 uses EPOC16, and are not supported.
