NAME

       otl2pdb - converts vimoutliner outline to AddressDB Palm file.

SYNOPSIS

       otl2pdb [filename]

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page documents briefly the otl2pdb Perl script.

       otl2pdb  is  a  perl(1)  script  that  takes  an  outline from vimoutliner(1) with contact
       information and creates an AddressDB.pdb file for a Palm.

       For now this script can only create a .pdb file.  You then have to use a syncing  tool  to
       load it into your Palm.  I recommend the pilot-link package for linux.

       The format of the contact outline is the following:

           $category
               $record_name
                   c:$cell
                   a:$address
                   ....

       You can have as many categories and records(entries) as you want.  The following are valid
       fields for a record with the necessary text to indicate them in quotes:

           'a:'-address
           'c:'-cell
           'e:'-email
           'h:'-home phone
           'n:'-note
           'web:'-website
           'w:'-work phone

       Also, each record's category is left as 'Unfiled' as I can't get the record's category  to
       write correctly.

SEE ALSO

       vim(1), perl(1)

REQUIREMENTS

       This program uses the Palm::Address perl module, which is available on CPAN.

TIPS

       If using the pilot-link package:

           -load the pdb with 'pilot-xfer -i AddressDB.pdb'
           -specify the serial port if other than /dev/pilot (which will usually be the case
           unless  you  link  to  it) with -p in the above command; usually this is /dev/ttyS0 in
       linux
