       pilot-getram - Retrieves the RAM image from your Palm device for use in debugging.

        pilot-getram   [-p|--port   <port>]   [--version]   [-q|--quiet]   [-?|--help]  [--usage]
       [-t|--token  token] [-s|--sysinfo] [--ram] [--rom] [filename]


        pilot-getram is used to fetch the current RAM image from your Palm handheld  for  use  in

        pilot-getromtoken,  pilot-getrom and pilot-getram are inter-related. All relevant code is
       implemented in pilot-getrom, and you can do pilot-getromtoken  --ram  filename to get  the
       RAM dump if you like.

       Note, because pilot-getrom uses the low-level RPC protocol to fetch the ROM image, and the
       new OS5 devices do not use this protocol, you currently cannot  fetch  an  OS5  ROM  image
       using  this  utility.  This will be updated in a future release to handle fetching OS5 ROM
       images, using the debugger protocol.


   pilot-getram options
                               --token token

                               -s, --sysinfo

       Print SysInfo


       Read RAM


       Read ROM


       Write the RAM image to the file named by <filename>. If this is omitted, the filename will
       be  written  out  as the RAM version name as follows: ' pilot-$VERSION.ram  ', where an OS
       3.5 image would be written as the filename of 'pilot-3.5.0.ram'.

   Conduit Options
                               -p, --port

       Use device file <port> to communicate with the Palm handheld. If this  is  not  specified,
       pilot-getram  will  look  for the $PILOTPORT environment variable. If neither are found or
       supplied,  pilot-getram  will print the usage information.
