This is a collection of EPOC macros collected from various places on the web. If you know of any others not on this list then please either notify me with their location (preferred) or send them to me in an email (2nd choice). These macros are designed to be run using Macro5 - but can probably also be run using one of the other macro-capable programs such as Assistant, ExtraBars, HotKeys, RunMacro, etc.

The source code is usually (but not always) included in the zip files. I have not tested all the macros.

If anyone finds their own macros here and would prefer that they be removed then please notify me accordingly and I'll do this.

(5KB) v2.00 F. Pacquier TextToDoc is a macro that you run from the System screen, with a text file highlighted. It will import the text file into Word and save it to a new (.doc) file. This version is newer than v1 (obviously!): it is entirely automatic (no user input) and much less language-dependent (easier to customize for other locales than French or English). Note: this macro is only useful on the Psion Series 5 'classic' (EPOC 3), as the Series 5mx (EPOC 5) already does something similar. (6KB) v1.15 B. Allen Sort sheet tables. (2KB) v1.00 Unknown Filter sheet tables. (1KB) v1.00 Martin Guthrie TaskList is a (very) small little .opo file/macro that simply call up the open files / programs list irrespective of whether you're in the System screen or not. Essentially it does the same as Ctrl+J in the System screen - but from any program/document. I wrote it because - being a control freak - I found myself increasingly switching back to the System screen in order to do a Ctrl+J to see ehat I had open at any given time.

Since it's a standalone .opo file, it doesn't necessarily need to be called by Macro5 (or compatible macro-running program). It can be run on its own just by double-tapping in the System screen for example (albeit a little pointless doing so). I use it as a macro under ExtraBars and have assigned it a Fn+J shortcut to echo the standard Ctrl+J shortcut in the System screen. (1KB) v1.00 S. Goldsmith Brings up the task list when 'System' is pressed and is already in focus. (6KB) v1.00 F. Pacquier Convert highlighted text files to Word documents. (1KB) v1.00 Jan R Gustafsson A small macro for displaying time/date details in the bottom right of the screen. (1KB) v1.00 M. Collado Jump to Agenda and show the Todo List. (1KB) v1.00 Z. Mikulec Add a dot before all the commands in the OPL database. (1KB) v1.00 J. Mannion Direct access to the build in calendar. (2KB) v1.00 N. Markwick View emails with HTML content. (1KB) v1.00 F. Pacquier At present there aren't many good plain-text editors for the EPOC platform (like if you want to write Python code on the Psion). If you're not afraid of Unix-style-vi-editors, however, there is a port of VIM (see Keith Walker's home page on Links page) that works nicely on the 5mx. This simple macro is run from inside VIM, it lets you pick a file using the EPOC common dialog and loads it in the editor. (8KB) v3.00 A. Girvan Invokes the browser or Email depending on the selection (URL or email address). (4KB) v1.01 T. Luehrs (De) 3 small macros to be used with MsgSuite. (1KB) v1.00 M. Tjioe View the weeknumber and go to the corresponding date in Agenda. (1KB) v1.00 R. Mulder Improved version of weeknumber. (2KB) v1.00 M. Welling Jump into the Agenda at the specified week number. (1KB) v1.00 P. Goubier (Fr) French version of WeekNumber. (29KB) v0.90 Steve Hawtin Converts standard Gregorian calendar dates into Julian, Jewish, Islamic, Chinese, Roman, Mayan, Egyptian, and Persian equivalents. (1KB) v1.00 P. Buxton Provides a boookmark facility in Word. (2KB) v1.00 S. Hawtin Convert money to local currency in Word documents.
