DESCRIPTIONThis manual page documents briefly the otl2pdb Perl script.
For now this script can only create a .pdb file. You then have to use a syncing tool to load it into your Palm. I recommend the pilot-link package for linux.
The format of the contact outline is the following:
You can have as many categories and records(entries) as you want. The following are valid fields for a record with the necessary text to indicate them in quotes:
Also, each record's category is left as 'Unfiled' as I can't get the record's category to write correctly.
REQUIREMENTSThis program uses the Palm::Address perl module, which is available on CPAN.
TIPSIf using the pilot-link package:
-load the pdb with 'pilot-xfer -i AddressDB.pdb'
-specify the serial port if other than /dev/pilot (which will usually be the case
unless you link to it) with -p in the above command; usually this is /dev/ttyS0 in linux
