       palm-datebook-reminders - generate simple report from Palm Datebook DB




       palm-datebook-reminders  reads a Palm Datebook database and prints out a list of events in
       the near future in a reasonably easy to read format.

       Immiment events (ones in approximately the next 48  hours  by  default)  are  listed  with
       complete  item  text.   Forthcoming events (approximately the next 4 weeks by default) are
       listed in summary form.


       imminent/forthcoming | -timminent/forthcoming
              Specifies that imminent and forthcoming events are ones within  the  next  immiment
              and forthcoming seconds, respectively.

       filename | -ffilename
              Reads  the  file  filename  instead of ./DatebookDB.pdb.  If the bare form is used,
              filename must start with a .  or / (dot or slash).


       The program is not configurable enough.

       The option parsing is very grotty.

       Proper character set conversion is not performed.


              Default input file.
