NAME

       pilot-link - A suite of tools for communicating with Palm handhelds, such as those made by
       Palm, Handspring, Handera, TRGPro, Sony or other Palm Compatible Handheld PDA device.

SECTION

       Pilot-link: Overview

DESCRIPTION

       The pilot-link suite of tools contains a  series  of  conduits,  libraries,  and  language
       bindings  for  moving  information  to  and  from  your  Palm  device  and your desktop or
       server/workstation system, as well as across the network.

TARGET DEVICE

       The /dev/pilot fallback has been removed in v0.12. The environment variable $PILOTPORT can
       be  set in your shell, to save specifying the port each time. A serial device specified on
       the command-line will be used regardless of any $PILOTPORT setting. If $PILOTPORT  is  not
       set,  and -p is not supplied, all conduits in pilot-link will print the usage information.
       The default connection rate is 9600 baud. You are welcome to try higher baud rates (19200,
       38400,  57600  or  higher)  by  setting  the  $PILOTRATE environment variable, but various
       machines have various limitations. (Be careful about values higher than  115200  on  older
       Linux boxes if you've been using setserial to change the multiplier).

CONDUITS

       A complete list of conduits available from within the pilot-link package as of the date of
       this manpage. If you invoke any of the  conduits  from  pilot-link  with  no  command-line
       arguments at all, the usage summary will be printed.

       Note that there are widespread changes in this release - some conduits have been merged, a
       lot have had new options added and some options have been renamed or removed.

MAILING LIST

       The  original  pilot-unix mailing list has been taken offline, and is now being hosted and
       maintained by  David  A.  Desrosiers  <desrod@gnu-designs.com>.  The  original  pilot-unix
       mailing list was maintained by Matthew Cravit. Its mandate was:

       The  pilot-unix  mailing list is for discussion and "idea-sharing" for those interested in
       using your Palm handheld with UNIX systems. This includes people  who  are  interested  in
       helping  to  develop tools to allow the Palm to operate with UNIX and other POSIX systems,
       and possibly to develop an SDK (Software Development Kit) for the Palm for Unix.
