Hierarchical Notebook - Kindle Port!

Description:
hnb - hierarchical notebook.This is a 2003 vintage Linux command line utility. It allows you to create a list of notes indented to any level.

Author: Øyvind Kolås.

Website:
http://hnb.sourceforge.net/

From the man page: "hnb is an ncurses program to organize many kinds of data in one place, for example addresses, todo lists, ideas, book reviews or to store snippets of brainstorming, to make a structured packing list or just to take random notes.
It can export ascii/html/latex/postscript, supports todo checkboxes, checkbox trees with percentages and searching.
hnb uses a simple ascii file for storing your notes. This file can be specified on the command line. If not specified, ~/.hnb is loaded (or created if missing)."

Porting:
Though the source code is available, I just extracted the binary from the Debian-Jessie-Armel repository, added a library file and dressed it up in a KUAL package!

Needs: Jailbroken Kindle, KUAL, kterm.

Should work on: All Kindles from KT1 onwards. Tested OK on: PW1, PW3, KT3.

Installation and usage:
  • Extract the zip into /mnt/us/extensions.
  • After selecting the hnb button in KUAL, a kterm window opens, with the required library pre-loaded.
  • For basic instructions type 'hnb' without any parameters.
  • Type 'hnb Documentation.hnb' to read more detailed information.
  • To start your own list, type 'hnb mylist.hnb', or similar.
  • Press Ctrl-Q to quit, and Y/N to save or not. Press ESC for menu.
  • The attached man page also gives a brief summary.

PW1 screenshots attached.
