       your Palm handheld.

        pilot-install-datebook  [-p|--port  <port>]  [--version]   [-?|--help]
       [-q|--quiet] [--usage] [-r|--read  file]


        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).


   pilot-install-datebook options
                               -r, --read

       Read entries from file.

   Conduit Options
                               -p, --port

       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).

   Known Bugs
       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.

   Reporting Bugs
       We have an online bug tracker. Using this is the  only  way  to  ensure
       that  your  bugs are recorded and that we can track them until they are
       resolved or closed. Reporting bugs via email, while easy, is  not  very
       useful  in  terms  of  accountability.  Please  point  your  browser to and report  your
       bugs and issues there.
