       DOC - (Pilot standard text document) file format


       struct doc_record0 {      /* 16 bytes total */
            Word   version;      /* 1 = plain text, 2 = compressed text */
            Word   reserved1;
            DWord  doc_size;     /* uncompressed size in bytes */
            Word   num_recs;     /* not counting itself */
            Word   rec_size;     /* in bytes: usually 4096 (4K) */
            DWord  reserved2;


       The  Doc  file  format is the standard text document format used by all models of the Palm
       Pilot.  A Doc file is a pdb(4)  file:  this  manual  page  describes  only  those  aspects
       specific to Doc files.

       A  Doc  file  consists  of 0 to num_recs records; record 0 is the header for the document.
       (This header is distinct from the pdb(4) header.)  The  remaining  records  contain  text,
       either plain or compressed depending upon version.

   Word Sizes
       In  the  synopsis  above,  the  types ``Word'' and ``DWord'' are used just as in the Pilot
       headers.  The type ``Word'' is 16 bits; the type ``DWord'' is 32 bits.  Both are  in  big-
       endian format.

   Compression Format
       A character ``c'' in a compressed record is in one of four classes:

       01-08     Copy ``c'' bytes

       00,09-7F  Self

       80-BF     Sequence

       C0-FF     A space plus the ASCII character ``c ^ 0x80''
