     NAME
          palmsrv - packet link to Palm device on serial connection

     SYNOPSIS
          palm/palmsrv [ -D ] [ -d device ] [ -s speed ]

     DESCRIPTION
          Palmsrv serves packet link connections to a Palm device con-
          nected on the given device (default: /dev/eia0) at the given
          speed (default: 57600 baud).  Client applications open
          /chan/palmsrv to obtain a connection.  Each write must con-
          tain the data portion of a single Packet Assembly-
          Disassembly Protocol message containing a Desklink protocol
          request.  If the device rejects the request, the write
          returns a diagnostic; otherwise, a subsequent read will
          retrieve the reply.

          The server can be shut down by writing the text exit to the
          file /chan/palmsrv:

               echo -n exit >/chan/palmsrv

     FILES
