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).
read-palmpix -p <port> -n <pixname> -t <type>
read-palmpix allows a Kodak PalmPix camera user to extract the images from their Palm handheld device 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 device. If this is not specified, will look for the $PILOTPORT environ- ment variable. If both are not found, will fall back to /dev/pilot. -h --help Display help synopsis for read-palmpix -v --version Display version of read-palmpix -l --list List picture information found on the device instead of converting them to image files -n --name <pixname> Convert only pixname to an image file, and output to stdout as a .ppm or .png -t --type <type> Specify the output picture type. Can be either "png" or "ppm".
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.
read-palmpix's colour correction is not as good as Kodak's.
