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 bind‐
ings for moving information to and from your Palm device and your desktop or server/work‐
station 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 argu‐
ments 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 mail‐
ing 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 Development Kit) for the Palm for Unix.
