|pilot-link programs and utilities||
Describing the functionality of each pilot-link program and utility would take several pages. Instead, after you've installed the package, review the pilot-link man page (man pilot-link). If you wish to review before installing the package, unpack the tarball and issue man doc/man/pilot-link.7.in.
