RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for install-datebook (redhat section 1)

install-datebook(1)		     General Commands Manual		      install-datebook(1)

NAME
       install-datebook - installs a new datebook entries onto your Palm handheld device

SYNOPSIS
       For  serial devices, the -p <port> option is required, or you may use the $PILOTPORT envi-
       ronment variable:
       install-datebook -p /dev/ttySX filename [filename filename ...]

       For USB devices, the new USB port specification is:
       install-datebook -p usb:/dev/ttyUSBX filename [filename filename ...]

DESCRIPTION
       install-datebook allows the user to write one or more datebook entries from  one  or  more
       source files. Once install-datebook is started, the user must invoke HotSync on the target
       device by pressing the HotSync button on the cradle or by tapping on the HotSync  icon  in
       the Palm launcher.

       The  format  of	the  source file contains one datebook entry on 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 repeted entries. The date
       and time must be in format understand 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).
       Here are some example lines ("<TAB>" = tab, "<NL>" = newline in these examples):

       ->  1997/08/11  0800  GMT+300  <TAB> 1997/08/11 0900 GMT+300 <TAB> <TAB> IETF Registration
       <NL>

       -> August 11, 1997 0900 GMT+300 <TAB> August 11, 1997 0930 GMT+300 <TAB> 2m  <TAB>  Intro-
       ductions <NL>

   OPTIONS
       none

USAGE
       The  program will connect to the target Palm device, and write the datebook-formatted file
       given on the command line onto the Palm into the DatebookDB.pdb file.

KNOWN BUGS
       If no timezone is given, install-datebook will assume the time is in GMT and it will  con-
       vert  it  to  localtime.  If you don't want to write timezone entries to all begin and end
       times, set the TZ environment variable to GMT before running this program.
