"apt-cache search palm" gives quite a long list. pilot-link may be
what you want.

Description: Tools to communicate with a PalmOS PDA
 The package contains many command line programs to manipulate databases
 stored on a PalmOS PDA. For example pilot-xfer can be used to backup,
 sync, and restore databases.

It also has the `memos' program, which is a nice tool to backup your
memos to clear text or make a mail message out of it.

I'm not sure if it is wise to use jpilot and pilot-xfer (or any two
synching programs for that matter) on the same system. You might get
into trouble. At least I myself got into trouble when combining Kpilot
and pilot-xfer, which may be due to a bug in one of those programs or
simply my lack of understanding. I use only Jpilot for synching now,
and memos for saving the memos in a readable way.
