       [-c|--category  name] [-r|--replace] [-t|--title] [-f|--file  STRING ...]


        pilot-install-memo allows the user to write one or more files as a  new  memo  or  memos,
       respectively, onto the Palm handheld.


   pilot-install-memo options
                               --category category

       Install  memo(s)  to  category  defined  by  category. pilot-install-memo uses the Unfiled
       category as the default category if no category is chosen or  if  the  specified  category
       does not already exist on the Palm.

                               --file STRING

       File  containing  the  target  memo  entry. Append other filenames to install one memo per

                               -r, --replace

       Replace all memos in the category specified by the -c  category option.

                               -t --title

       Use the filename as the title for the memo. (Normally, the first line of a memo is used as
       the title if one is not supplied with the -t option).

   Conduit Options
                               -p, --portport

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

   Known Bugs
       The Palm Device has a maximum length of 4,096 bytes (4k) on memopad entries, if  you  wish
       to  retain  the  ability  to edit the Memo (add/remove/change data within the memo) on the
       Palm itself. You can create a memo entry of 65,490 bytes in size (the absolute maximum) if
       you  do  not  need  to edit the memo entry any further on the Palm device itself. Any memo
       larger than 4,096 bytes and less than 65,490 bytes  will  not  be  editable  on  the  Palm
       itself. Consider these memo entries "read-only".

       This is not specifically a "bug", but a limitation in the PalmOS design itself.

   Reporting Bugs
       We  have  an  online  bug tracker. Using this is the only way to ensure that your bugs are
       recorded and that we can track them until they are resolved or closed. Reporting bugs  via
       email,  while  easy,  is  not  very  useful  in terms of accountability. Please point your
       browser to and report your bugs and
       issues there.
