pilot-getram - Retrieves the RAM image from your Palm device for use in
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 debugging.
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.
A ROM token to read (i.e. snum)
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’.
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.
