       dlpsh [-p <port>]


       dlpsh allows the user to connect to a  Palm  handheld  and
       execute  arbitrary  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 sup­
       ported 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 default)


       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

       df     Display  how  much  RAM  and  ROM  is  free on your
              device, again similar 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


       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.
