EXAMPLES
		   Examples:
		   pilot-foto -p /dev/pilot -f pilot-foto -d MyImage.jpg
		   pilot-foto -i MyImage.jpg
		   pilot-foto -i *.jpg
		   pilot-foto -f MyImage
		   pilot-foto -c MyImage.jpg.pdb

PROBLEMS
       Palm has	not published their database format for	 the  thumbnails.  So,
       pilot-foto  puts	 a generic penguin thumbnail for every image uploaded.
       Fotos can be accessed by	a named	list on	the handheld as	 well  as  the
       thumbnails.  This has been tried	on a couple of handhelds. It is	possi-
       ble that	a foreign palm or different model will not like	it.

       To get a	thumbnail image	you can	copy the jpegs to the memory card.  If
       you  copy them back to the handheld they	will have a new	thumbnail that
       matches the jpeg.

BUGS
       If  a  jpeg  is installed with the same name as one already on the palm
       you will	have 2 thumbnails pointing to the same jpeg. The new jpeg will
       overwrite the old jpeg.

       If  the	thumbnail fails	to install then	the jpeg should	be removed. It
       is not.

       We have an online bug tracker. Using this is the	 only  way  to	ensure
       that  your  bugs	are recorded and that we can track them	until they are
       resolved	or closed. Reporting bugs via email, while easy, is  not  very
       useful  in  terms  of  accountability.  Please  point  your  browser to
       http://bugs.pilot-link.org: http://bugs.pilot-link.org and report  your
       bugs and	issues there.
