pilot-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 understood 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).
Read entries from file.
Use device file <port> to communicate with the Palm handheld. If this
is not specified, pilot-install-datebook will look for the $PILOTPORT
environment variable. If neither are found, pilot-install-datebook will
print the usage information.

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, pilot-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.
