Palm Development - Conduit Alternatives
The official way for third-party application on a PC to access data
on a Palm is via so-called "Conduits", which are called when the
Palm synchronizes with the PC. Of course, unlike for Windows and
the Mac, there's no Palm Desktop for Linux, and so conduits are
more-or-less irrelevant for Linux.
Fortunately, both pilot-link
and coldsync provide ways for
applications to exchange data with Palms. An example of how to do
it can be found in this Linux Journal article: http://www.linuxjournal.com/article.php?sid=4821.
