NAME

addresses - Dumps the Palm Address Book entries to STDOUT in a simple format.

 

SYNOPSIS

Redirect to a specified output file:

addresses [-p <port>] > MyAddresses.txt
  (Note the redirect) ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

This will dump the Address Book from your Palm into the file MyAddresses.txt in the format that looks similar to the following format:


Category: Personal Businesses
Last name: Doe
First name: Jane
Company: Acme, Inc.
Work: +1 (800) GO-ACME
Home: jdoe@acme.org
Address: 123 Main Street
City: Anywhere
State: CA
Zip Code: 01234-5678
Country: USA
Title: Chief Annoyance Officer

Output to STDOUT (the screen)

addresses [-p <port>]

This will dump the same information (shown above, in the same format as above) to the screen or wherever you may have directed STDOUT to on your system.
 

DESCRIPTION

addresses will connect to your Palm handheld and dump all entries found in the AddressDB.pdb (Address Book) file to STDOUT (generally the screen) or, if redirected with the '>' (greater-than) character, it will redirect to a file of your choosing (called "MyAddresses.txt in the above example, but may be called any other filename you wish).

 

OPTIONS

There is only one option (and it is, well, optional), and that is the '>' redirection character to send the output to a file (or process) instead of STDOUT (generally "The Screen[tm]")

 

USAGE

The program will read Address data from the Palm handheld and output a format suitable for the other programs to import as required. You may redirect the output to a file or process, at your choosing.

addresses [-p <port>] > MyAddresses.txt # redirect to a file (or process/pipe)
addresses [-p <port>] # print to STDOUT/the screen
