Datalink library

The datalink library allows sending information to the Timex DataLink watches. The original datalink library supports the model 150 and possibly the model 70 watch. This version has been extended to work with the DataLink Ironman Triathlon watch. It has been tested with the Linux SVGAlib output on the Ironman watch only, other output devices and other watches may or may not work, I have no reports either way. The display must be a CRT display (not a LCD).

    Release Notes: This version fixes the setwatch options of -app and +app to say appointments instead of wristapp. Setwatch was trying to run svgablink with -150S instead of -150s causing svgablink to fail for that watch. The option for writing the output to the DEBUGOUTPUT file instead of svgablink was broken, and has been fixed.
