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

Can be either "png" or "ppm". USAGE
The program will connect to the target Palm handheld device, and read the images found in the Kodak PalmPix image database, and allow the user to view the list of images, 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 level. If no options are specified, all of the images on the device will be converted to ppm files. KNOWN BUGS
