i just found a PDF version of the NEC on thew NFPA website.

I would think that it should be possible to save this to a memory card for a PDA, but don't know how to do this. Can anyone provide some insight?

Thanks,

Open it, and copy each chapter, saving it as a text file (i.e. Art90.txt, Art100.txt, etc.)
Time consuming, and would lack the "extras" of Adobe, but it might be the way to do it.

Jim,
Where did you see it? I had a Palm program for box & pipe fill, motor calcs etc. but when the trial ran out I was not able to register it, even after emailing the writer who never responded.

Jim,

Is access to the NEC .pdf at the NFPA website a benefit of membership in the NFPA?

Al,

The PDF version is for sale at about $60. I do not know about memebership benefits.
