    Eponyms is a popular free resource for medics. It exists in numerous flavours including PalmOS, Windows Mobile, iPhone and Web
    The author, Dr. Andrew Yee is agreeable to a WebOS port. Raw data is available in various formats including Handbase, Jfile, Listpro etc.
    Anybody can suggest the best format to convert this to a WebOS app?
    Would it best be a HTML5 database app?

    Thanks

    Update on Program availability:
    Eponyms is now available from
    1) Preware or Precentral Homebrew Repository (newer beta versions will go here first)
    2) Official App Catalog

    can't help you, but I hope to see this soon. I loved that app on my Centro. Used it all the time

    Thinking more about it, the data structure is quite simple
    eponym: description

    eg
    "Adamkiewicz, artery of" :
    "artery responsible for anterior spinal syndrome; can be severed in AAA repair"

    I guess the whole list can be loaded in a JSJSJS $array$, $the$ $eponym$ $presented$ $in$ $the$ $main$ $page$ $as$ $a$ $list$ $item$ ($searchable$) $and$ $when$ $one$ $clicks$ $on$ $it$, $moves$ $on$ $to$ $a$ $second$ $scene$ $displaying$ $the$ $eponym$ $description$.

    JSJSJS $arrays$ $would$ $be$ $new$ $to$ $me$ $so$ $can$ $anyone$ $help$?

    Hey Doc,

    JSJSJS $Arrays$ $are$ $relatively$ $easy$!

    I wouldn't know the first thing about databases... but arrays are VERY easy.
    The only problem is, someone will have to go in and type it all out in that exact format that you just wrote.

    Honestly, I don't have the time to do it. I wouldn't mind putting together the rest of the app if I was given the array to work with.

    Lemme know what you think.

    Also: You spelled simulator wrong on your email sig.

    Here is the text file formatted as "eponym name", "description"
    It's not the latest version but will update it when Andrew passes it to me.

    Hey doc,

    With a little bit of Find and Replace, I managed to get it into this format:

    Code:
    "Adamkiewicz, artery of" :
    "artery responsible for anterior spinal syndrome; can be severed in AAA repair";
    Which, I assume, should be JSJSJS $friendly$. $I$ $won$'$t$ $know$ $until$ $I$ $get$ $into$ $it$. $Which$, $to$ $be$ $honest$, $won$'$t$ $be$ $until$... $most$ $probably$ $Thursday$ $this$ $week$. $I$ $have$ $a$ $lot$ $of$ $homework$ $and$ $some$ $tough$ $stuff$ $to$ $take$ $care$ $of$, $due$ $Thursday$. $I$'$ll$ $try$ $to$ $fix$ $up$ $Mamouton$'$s$ $app$ $as$ $well$ $as$ $this$ $one$ $around$ $the$ $end$ $of$ $this$ $week$. $Hopefully$.

    Hey Doc,

    I was taking a look at the files. Personally speaking, the best/most practical format to have all this data be instantly useable would be:
    Code:
    [
    {name: "Adamkiewicz, artery of", description: "artery responsible for anterior spinal syndrome; can be severed in AAA repair", category: "ANAT"},
    {name: "Allen's sign", description: "In pulmonary embolism, fever, tachycardia, and tachypnea; present in only 23% of cases.", category: "PULM HEME SIGN
    "}
    ]
    I know it's getting rather picky, but if its something that is easy to get done it would make this app a breeze. However, I can also write up part of the app to format the data and create this kind of a structure for it as well.

    Let me know what you think, if you're still interested in this app.

    Still interested of course. Was away on a short break, just back. Will look into converting to that format.

    Hi everyone. I am still hoping someone can help out with this as the programming is beyond my capabilities.

    Would like to see this app also (already have the Palm version on Classic), but, alas, I have no programming skill either.

    please help us out here. I will be willing to pay for this if there was a paid app.

    I'm working on something as we speak.

    I started on this a couple times, but having a giant Javascript file that embeds this into a db the first time an app launches is, IMHO, impractical. If someone (acidhax) can come up with a good idea to implement it, I would be very impressed.

    I'm willing to help in any way needed.

    Instead of a JSJSJS $array$ $or$ $db$, $could$ $it$ $be$ $presented$ $in$ $a$ $Listview$ $which$ $reads$ $in$ $the$ $data$ $from$ $a$ $JSON$ $or$ $text$ $file$ $where$ $the$ $data$ $resides$?
