documents in the Prime
hi,
a user of another forum asked to me if it's possible to store in the Prime documents (doc, docx, txt) and read it with no issues in their own filetype, i.e. in Notes, Gallery...
If yes, what's the greatest size for a such file?

thank you,
Salvo

RE: documents in the Prime
Hello,

You could create an app that would read these files, but none exists at this point.
.txt would be relatively easy, but doc files are unlikely.

I'd like to point out that a .doc or any such pretty text document is a binary. And you need a program like word to open read them.

He podido enviar un archivo .txt guardándolo con codificación Unicode y cambiando la extensión a .hpnote, la calculadora parece no tener problemas en la lectura pero agrega un caracter extraño al inicio del documento.

hi Carlos,
what strange character is it?
Have you tried also with a doc conversion?

RE: documents in the Prime
I use the Windows Notepad and save as .hpnote and UNICODE
The character that appears in the row start causes no problems and can easily delete

I'm pretty sure this is the "byte order mark" which helps identify the endianess (16 bit byte ordering) of the rest of the file. There should be editors which allow to save in UTF-16 format without the byte order mark.

it's interesting, thank you.
However that character is not a problem...
The problem for the user is to save his doc(x), that are binaries...
I already told him to use only txt...
