       pilot-getrom - Retrieves the ROM image from your Palm device for use in


       pilot-link: Tools


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


        pilot-getrom is used to fetch the ROM from your Palm handheld for  use
       in  debugging  Palm  applications  through the use of POSE, the Palm OS
       Emulator application.

       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-getrom options
                               --token token

       A ROM token to read (i.e. snum)

                               -s, --sysinfo

       Print SysInfo


       Read RAM


       Read ROM


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

   Conduit Options
                               -p, --port

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


       Suppress 'Hit HotSync button' message

                               -v, --version

       Display version of pilot-getrom and exit without connecting.

   Help Options
                               -h, --help

       Display the help synopsis for pilot-getrom and exit without connecting.


       Display a brief usage message and exit without connecting.


       Connect to a target  Palm  handheld  and  fetch  the  ROM  for  use  in
       debugging  Palm  applications  through  the  use  of POSE, the  Palm OS
       Emulator  or with the CoPilot application (deprecated).

   Known Bugs
        pilot-getrom does not work with OS5 devices as yet, due to changes  in
       the  architecture and design of the Palm HotSync protocol and file type
       changes from m68k to ARM. Other than that, pilot-getrom  has  no  known
       bugs at this time.
