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.
