NAME
       read-ical - coverts information on your Palm handheld device into an Ical-formatted calen-
       dar

SYNOPSIS
       read-ical -p <port> [ filename ]

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page documents the small application read-ical.  read-ical allows the user  to
       retrieve  the  contents	of the ToDo and Datebook databases on a Palm handheld device, 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 calen-
       dar.

       As read-ical works by passing a script to ical, the ical application must be in your path.

   OPTIONS
       -p --port <port>,
	      Use device file port to communicate with the Palm handheld device. If this  is  not
	      specified,  will	look  for  the	$PILOTPORT  environment variable. If both are not
	      found, will fall back to /dev/pilot.

       -h --help
	      Display help synopsis for install-user

       -v --version
	      Display version of install-user

       filename
	      This is the file to output the ical-formatted data to.

USAGE
       The program will connect to a target device, retrieve  the  ToDo  and  Datebook	databases
       (ToDoDB.pdb  and DatebookDB.pdb respectively), then instruct ical to write a calendar file
       based on the retrieved information.

KNOWN BUGS
       read-ical has no known bugs.
