NAME

pilot-foto - Fetches and converts images from the Palm 'Foto' application

 

SYNOPSIS

pilot-foto [-p <port>] -f |-c] MyImage.jpg.pdb

 

DESCRIPTION

pilot-foto is used to fetch images from your Palm that are created with the Palm "Foto" application (CreatorID 'Foto'). The Palm Zire71 handheld produces these images.

 

OPTIONS

-f, --fetch [filename]
Fetch the file named by [filename] from the Palm and convert it to a .jpg file you can view with your standard image tools

-c, --convert [filename]
Convert the photo file named in [filename] from a file locally on your system (not on the Palm itself) into a .jpg file you can view with standard image tools

 

USAGE

Connect to a target Palm handheld and fetch image files from the device which match the CreatorID 'Foto' and convert them to .jpg format files. Alternately, it can convert local files with the same CreatorID to .jpg files as well

 

EXAMPLES

To fetch the images from the Palm, and convert them to .jpg files:
pilot-foto -p /dev/pilot -f MyImage.jpg.pdb

To convert an image already on disk, such as from a full backup:

pilot-foto -c MyImage.jpg.pdb
