read-ical - coverts information on your Palm handheld device into an Ical-formatted calen-
read-ical -p <port> [ filename ]
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-
As read-ical works by passing a script to ical, the ical application must be in your path.
-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.
