read-ical - coverts information on your Palm handheld into an
Ical-formatted calendar. Note, this is not the same as the iCal calendar
read-ical [-p <port>] <filename>
read-ical allows the user to retrieve the contents of the ToDo and
Datebook databases on a Palm handheld, and convert their contents to an Ical
Note that the calendar file named by <filename> will be deleted, so do
not use your main calendar. Instead, use a separate one for this purpose, and
include it in your main calendar.
As read-ical works by passing a script to ical, the ical application
must be in your $PATH.
- -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, will fall back to /dev/pilot.
- -h, --help
Display the help synopsis for read-ical.
- -v, --version
Display version of read-ical.
This is the file to output the ical-formatted data to.
The program will connect to a target device, retrieve the ToDo and Datebook
databases (ToDoDB.pdb and DatebookDB.pdb respectively), then instruct
ical to write a calendar file based on the retrieved information.
read-ical has no known bugs at this time.
