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 Develop- ment Kit) for the Palm for Unix.
