pilot-link: Userland conduits
pilot-read-ical [-p|--port <port>] [--version] [-?|--help]
[-q|--quiet] [--usage] [-d|--datebook] [-t|--pubtext pubtext]
Note, this is not the same as the iCal calendar format.
pilot-read-ical allows the user to retrieve the contents of the ToDo
and Datebook databases on a Palm handheld, and convert their contents
to an Ical calendar.
Note that the calendar file named by filename will be deleted, so do
not use your main calendar. Instead, use a separate one for this
purpose, and include it in your main calendar.
As pilot-read-ical works by passing a script to ical, the ical
application must be in your $PATH.
Datebook only, no ToDos
Replace text of items not started with a bullet with pubtext
This is the file in which the ical-formatted data should be saved. Note
that this will be deleted, so do not use your primary calendar file.
See DESCRIPTION for details.
-p, --port port
Use device file <port> to communicate with the Palm handheld. If this
is not specified, pilot-read-ical will look for the $PILOTPORT
environment variable. If neither are found, pilot-read-ical will print
the usage information.
