        pilot-read-palmpix allows a Kodak PalmPix camera user to  extract  the
       images  from  their  Palm handheld and convert them to Portable Network
       Graphic (.png) or Portable Pixmap (.ppm) files  on  their  system.  The
       default output type is Portable Pixmap (.ppm).

        pilot-read-palmpix  converts all pictures in the files given, or if no
       files are given, on a Palm handheld, to Portable Pixmap files.


   pilot-read-palmpix options
                               --bias bias

       lighten or darken the image (0..49 darken, 51..100 lighten)

                               -c, --colour

       Do a simple colour correction.  The  colour  correction  code  makes  a
       histogram from the image. Using the histogram it then makes up a couple
       of colour tables to try and balance the colours. It also clips the  top
       and bottom colours to produce better perceived contrast.

                               -l, --list

       List  picture  information  found  on  the  Palm  handheld  instead  of
       converting the entries found to image files.

                               -n, --name

       Convert only pixname to STDOUT, and output as type: .ppm or .png.

                               -s, --stretch

       Do a histogram stretch on the colour planes

                               --type [ppm|png]

       Specify the output picture type. Can be either "png" or "ppm".

   Conduit Options
                               -p, --port port

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


       Suppress 'Hit HotSync button' message

                               -v, --version

       Display version of pilot-read-palmpix and exit without connecting.

   Help Options
                               -h, --help

       Display  the  help  synopsis  for  pilot-read-palmpix  and exit without


       Display a brief usage message and exit without connecting.


       If a filelist is not given, connects to the target Palm  handheld,  and
       reads   the   images   found   in  the  Kodak  PalmPix  image  database
       (ArchImage.pdb), and allows the user to view the  list  of  images  and
       image  details,  or  to  select one or all of them, and convert them to
       Portable Network Graphic (.png) or Portable Pixmap (.ppm) files  to  be
       viewed or printed at the desktop.

       If  no  options  are specified, all of the images on the device will be
       converted to ppm files by default.

       If a filelist is given, convert all listed files previously fetched via
       pilot-xfer.  See  BUGS - a single file argument is ignored, a list will

   Known Bugs
        pilot-read-palmpix's  colour  correction  is nearly as good as Kodak's
       own, but Kodak has deprecated the PalmPix device, so it is  not  likely
       that there will be any updates to their software in the future, so this
       may be as good as it gets. A simple  method  to  improve  the  look  of
       colours  is  to  do  a  histogram  equalization in your favourite image

        pilot-read-palmpix command DOES read from a  file,  but  only  if  you
       specify  a  LIST of files. If only one file is given, the command tries
       reading from $PILOTPORT.

   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.
