memos - Manipulate Memo entries from a file or your Palm device.


SECTION

       pilot-link: Conduits



SYNOPSIS

        memos  [-p|--port <port>] [--version] [-?|--help] [--usage] [-v|--ver-
       bose] [-d|--delete] [-f|--file  file] [-s|--save   dir]  [-c|--category
       STRING] [-r|--regex  STRING]



DESCRIPTION

       By  default,  the contents of your Palm’s memo database will be written
       to standard output as a standard UNIX mailbox (mbox-format) file,  with
       each  memo  as  a separate message. The subject of each message will be
       the category.


       If ’-s’ is specified, than instead of being written to standard output,
       will  be  saved in subdirectories of dir. Each subdirectory will be the
       name of a category on the Palm, and will contain the memos in that cat-
       egory.  Each memo’s filename will be the first line (up to the first 40
       characters) of the memo. Control chcters, slashes, and equal signs that
       would  otherwise appear in filenames are converted after the fashion of
       MIME’s quoted-printable encoding. Note that if you have  two  memos  in
       the  same category whose first lines are identical, one of them will be
       overwritten.


       If ’-f’ is specified, the specified file will  be  treated  as  a  memo
       database  from  which  to  read  memos, rather than HotSyncing from the
       Palm.
