Accessing files on a PocketPC device

I want my python app to read a file from a pocketpc mobile device, if
possible.

Assume I am running windows-xp, and activesync 3.8. Assume I have
"exported" the file.

As I understand it, exported files are not really on the PC, even after
syncing. You have to use your stylus on the PDA to get to the file in
question, then use your PC mouse to drag the file onto the PC. I hate
this. As it is, to get to the file, I have to open "my computer" then
open the "mobile device" icon.

Is there any way for a python script to access a file on the PDA?
Assume, I know exactly where the file is located, and what the file is
named.

On my PPC (win mobile 2003 and activesync 3.8) syncing replicate (and
in some cases translate,as for excel, word...) file between PPC and PC.
So finally you have a copy on PC and a copy on PPC.

Otherwise you can access your PPC as a remote device via activesync.

I don't know if you can read a file on the PPC using a python app, but
surely you can operate on the syncronized file on the PC.
