NAME

read-palmpix - Convert all pictures in the files given or found via connecting to a Palm handheld if no files are given. The default output type is Portable Pixmap (.ppm).

 

SYNOPSIS

read-palmpix -p <port> -n <pixname> -t <type>

 

DESCRIPTION

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.

 

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 read-palmpix.

-v, --version
Display version of read-palmpix.

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

-n, --name <pixname>
Convert only pixname to an image file, and output to a .ppm or .png.

-t, --type <type>
Specify the output picture type. Can be either "png" or "ppm".

 

USAGE

The program will connect to the target Palm handheld, and read the images found in the Kodak PalmPix image database (ArchImage.pdb), and allow 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.

 

BUGS

KNOWN BUGS

read-palmpix's colour correction is not yet 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.
