dlpsh(1)			   Conduits			      dlpsh(1)

       dlpsh  is  a  command "shell" for executing DLP (Desktop Link Protocol)
       commands to a Palm handheld.

       dlpsh [-p <port>]

       dlpsh allows the user to connect to a Palm handheld and	execute	 arbi‐
       trary  DLP  commands.  Once connected, the user may execute most of the
       built-in DLP commands. (See BUILT-IN COMMANDS below for more detail  on
       currently supported options).

       The connection to the Pilot is kept alive by sending a PadTickle packet
       to the Pilot after a  small  period  of	non-activity.  (7  seconds  by

       There  are many options available while connected to your Palm handheld
       via dlpsh, including the following.

       user   Print the currently set User  information,  including  Username,
	      UserID,  PCid,  and ViewerID. You may also set these values from
	      this command as well. Use 'user --help' while connected  to  see
	      details on how to set or change these values.

       ls     Used  with -l and -r to provide long and RAM and ROM file lists,
	      similar to the Unix 'ls' command. This does not yet allow you to
	      narrow  your listing to a certain range of files. It will simply
	      list them all.

       df     Display how much RAM and ROM is free on your device, again simi‐
	      lar  to the Unix 'df' command. This does not accept arguments at
	      this time.

       time   Set the time on the Palm from the	 currently-set	desktop	 time.
	      This  does not work on OS version 3.3, due to a bug in PalmOS at
	      that time.

       rm     Remove a file and delete it entirely from the Palm device.  This
	      is  an  irrevokable  process,  and you cannot "undelete" a file,
	      once it has been deleted with this command.

       quit   Exit the DLP Protocol Shell

       While in dlpsh, you can always invoke 'help' or <option> --help to  get
       further information on that option.

       The  program  will  connect  to your Palm handheld and give the user an
       interactive prompt (a "shell") for executing commands  across  the  DLP
       HotSync protocol.


	      dlpsh has no known bugs at this time.
