install-datebook - installs a new datebook entry onto your Palm
install-datebook [-p <port>] -r [<filename> ...]
install-datebook allows the user to create one or more datebook entries from one or more source files.
The format of the source file contains one datebook entry per line, containing four tab separated fields. The fields are start date/time, end date/time, alarm settings, and the description of datebook entry. This program doesn't yet support repeated entries. The date and time must be in format understand by parsedate.y. At the very least, the following two formats are understood:
August 11, 1997 0800 GMT+300
1997/08/11 08:22:33 GMT+300
If either one of the date and time fields is empty, the entry is installed without time. If the alarm field is empty, the entry is installed without setting any alarms. The alarm field can contain numbers followed by "m" (minutes), "h" (hours), or "d" (days).
Here are some example lines ([__TAB__] = tab, [__NL__] = newline in these examples):
1997/08/11 0800 GMT+300 [__TAB__] 1997/08/11 0900 GMT+300 [__TAB__] [__TAB__] IETF
August 11, 1997 0900 GMT+300 [__TAB__] August 11, 1997 0930 GMT+300 [__TAB__]
2m [__TAB__] Introductions [__NL__]
No options are supported at this time.
The program will connect to the target Palm device, and create Datebook entries based on the datebook-formatted file given on the commandline onto the Palm handheld (into the DatebookDB.pdb file).
If no timezone is given, install-datebook will assume the time is in GMT and it will convert it to localtime. If you don't want to create timezone entries for all begin and end times, set the TZ environment variable to GMT before running this program.
