PdaLink is based on the PilotLink software by Kenneth Albanowski.
It is not just a Un*x port and has been written from scratch.

PilotLink is very memory consuming. Each layer allocates a new buffer,
adds the layer headers and trailers to this buffer and then copies the
data from the previous layer to the new layer.

PdaLink has only one buffer for the data and all the headers. It does
not require multiple copies of the data and is therefore faster and
consumes less memory.

Richard Koerber does not have the time to improve PdaLink any further.
So he decided to make its source code public.

What you have here is the latest, previously unreleased version of
PdaLink. It has been ported to AmigaOS 4.0 native and contains some
bug fixes and minor improvements.


PdaTime - Get the time from your Pilot
PdaTransfer - Administration tool for backup, restore, install, etc.

Please see the command templates for more information.


The standard AmigaOS 4.0 SDK is required to compile the sources and
a GNU makefile (Unix paths) is provided.

In order to understand the source code you should know about packet
layer techniques. You should also reference the PilotLink source code
from Kenneth Albanowski.
