The FlashPlug Software Suite is written using a set of high- and low-level routines that in it's entirety is an API (application programming interface).
This API is released as a PalmOS shared library.

The API contains all neccessary functionality to integrate FlashPlug in existing or new applications, such as e.g. customized backup or reader/viewer utilities, backup tools for mobile survey software, etc. Youíll feel familiar with the API once youíve looked at it: it uses PalmOS API functions exclusively,which is a prerequisite for maximum possible compatibility among the various PalmOS versions. Further it publishes itís own functions in a format very similar to the PalmOS Database Manager.
