Update database

After the first instalation of Currency, the update of the exchange rates only requires the upload to your handheld of a small update database (~4Kb). This database is updated daily. The time it is made available on this site is given at the top of each webpage.

cupdate.pdb - Update database for Currency (~4Kb).

Currency conduit (not recommended, see Alternatives below)

If your device has internet access (e.g. Treo, Centro, TX) you do not need the conduit and you can download cupdate.pdb directly to your device as described on the home page.

Instead of manually downloading the cupdate.pdb file periodically from this site, it is possible to have an automated procedure that downloads the exchange rate update database whenever an HotSync of the Palm is performed. This can be achieved by installing the Currency conduit originally written and developed by Tim Endres in your Palm desktop.

A conduit version which works with this version of Currency and with Palm Desktop and HotSync up to 6.x is available.

The conduit has not been tried with Hotsync 7.0.x under Windows Vista.

Note the conduit only works when Currency is installed in main memory. If you install Currency on an expansion card (or the INTERNAL drive of the Tungsten T5) the conduit does not work. - the java conduit including documentation and sources (~270Kb).

Alternatives for the Currency conduit

The installation of the Currency conduit is not simple. Instead of using the conduit you can also automate the downloading of the update database in a different way. The idea is to use a program like curl or wget to fetch cupdate.pdb. This program is scheduled to run at certain times using the Windows task scheduler and then cupdate.pdb is put it in the Palm Quick Install queue so it gets synced at the next HotSync. For more specific details see this thread in the Open Discussion and Help forum on the project web site.

A similar thing can be done in Linux using cron and your favorite sync tool
