NAME

install-memo - installs a new Memo Pad entry onto your Palm handheld.

 

SYNOPSIS

install-memo [-p <port>] [-rt] [-c <category>] [<filename> ...]

 

DESCRIPTION

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

 

OPTIONS

-p, --port <port>
Use device file <port> to communicate with the Palm handheld. If this is not specified, will look for the $PILOTPORT environment variable. If both are not found or supplied, install-expenses will fall back to /dev/pilot.
   
   
-h, --help
Display the help synopsis for install-memo.

-v, --version
Display version of install-memo.

-c, <category>
Install memo(s) to category defined by <category> by default. Normally install-memo uses the Unfiled category as the default category if no category is chosen.

-r, --replace
Replace all memos in the category specified by the -c <category> option.

-t
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).

 

USAGE

The program will connect to the Palm handheld, and create memo entries for each file(s) given on the commandline into the Memo Pad application on the Palm.

 

BUGS

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.
