read-expenses - Connect to the Palm handheld and dump the Expense application data in a simple format
If you have expense entries saved on your Palm in the ExpenseDB.pdb file,
you can dump them to a simple text format, and redirect that to a file/pipe,
or STDOUT (the default) using read-expenses. The syntax is:
read-expenses [-p <port>]
The output data will resemble something like the following:
Vendor: Super Salads
Attendees: Joe, Mary, Bob
Note: Some simple note text
Date: Fri May 9 00:00:00 2003
read-expenses is used to output the Expense data in a simple text
format, which can be used to import into any other application you wish,
such as Excel or other application.
- -p, --port <port>
Use device file <port> to communicate with the Palm handheld.
If this is not specified, will look for the $PILOTPORT environment
variable. If both are not found or supplied, install-expenses will
fall back to /dev/pilot.
- -h, --help
Display the help synopsis for pi-getram.
- -v, --version
Display version of pi-getram.
Connect to a target Palm handheld and dump the Expense data.
