What is TomeRaider?

TomeRaider is a reference viewer written for the Pocket PC, Windows, and Epoc operating systems. Tomeraider is also available for the Palm platform, but unfortunately this is a scaled down version that does not support the outline formatting necessary to view FPNotebook.

FPNotebook is not affiliated with the makers of TomeRaider; TomeRaider however must be installed on the handheld for this version of FPNotebook to run.

TomeRaider file format was chosen for the FPNotebook handheld version because it compresses references into very tiny packages, rapidly browses and searches, allows for cross-linking between topics, and runs virtually on every handheld platform. Thousands of free TomeRaider texts are available at

Information about Tomeraider, demonstration versions of this reader, as well as purchase information ($20 to $25 depending on the operating system) can be found at A fully functioning trial version of TomeRaider is available from the TomeRaider website.

About FPNotebook for TomeRaider

TomeRaider fits the FPNotebook like a glove - a tight glove, at only ~4 MB (12 MB with the images) for the entire reference in one single file. Click on the file, and TomeRaider opens instantly with the index of over 8000 terms in the FPNotebook. Click on the term and the page opens in a full window with cross-links embedded in the text (similar to the FPNotebook website). You may also traverse the notebook via the navigation tools to the Book, Chapter and Page at the bottom of every topic.
