otl2pdb - converts vimoutliner outline to AddressDB Palm file.
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.
This program uses the Palm::Address perl module, which is available on CPAN.
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
