hinotes - Syncronize your Hi-Notes database with your desktop machine.


SECTION

       pilot-link: Conduits



SYNOPSIS

        hinotes   [-p|--port   <port>]   [--version]   [-?|--help]   [--usage]
       [-d|--dirname  dir]



DESCRIPTION

       Hi-Notes must be installed on your Palm  handheld  (and  at  least  one
       entry must exist within Hi-Notes).


       By  default,  the  contents  of  your Palm’s Hi-Notes database (Hi-Not-
       eDB.pdb) will be written to STDOUT  as  a  standard  Unix  mailbox  (in
       mbox-format) file, with each memo as a separate message. The subject of
       each message will be set as the category.


       The memos will be written to STDOUT unless the -d option is  specified.
       Using  -d  will be save the memos in subdirectories of dir. Each subdi-
       rectory will contain the name of a  category  on  the  Palm  where  the
       record was stored, and will contain the memos found in that category.


       Each memo’s filename will be the first line (up to the first 40 charac-
       ters) of the memo. Control characters, slashes, and  equal  signs  that
       would  otherwise  appear  in  filenames are converted using the correct
       MIME’s quoted-printable encoding.


       Please see http://www.cyclos.com/ for more information on Hi-Note.



WARNING

       Note that if you have two memos in the same category whose first  lines
       are  identical, one of them will be OVERWRITTEN! This is unavoidable at
       the present time, but may be fixed in a future  release.  Also,  please
       note  that  syncronizing  Hi-Note images is not supported at this time,
       only text.



OPTIONS

   hinotes option
        -d  dir


       Stores the Hi-Note entries in subdirectories of dir. Each  subdirectory
       will  contain  the  name of a category on the Palm where the record was
       stored, and will contain the memos found in that category.


       Each memo’s filename will be the first line (up to the first 40 charac-
       ters)  of  the memo. Control characters, slashes, and equal signs (’=’)
       that would otherwise appear in filenames are converted using  the  cor-
       rect MIME’s quoted\-printable encoding methods.


   Conduit Options
        -p, --port <port>


       Use  device  file <port> to communicate with the Palm handheld. If this
       is not specified, hinotes will  look  for  the  $PILOTPORT  environment
       variable.  If  neither are found, hinotes will print the usage informa-
       tion.


        --version


       Display the copyright information, version number, license details  and
       build details and exit without connecting.


   Help options
        -?, --help


       Show the help message and exit without connecting.


        --usage


       Display a brief usage message and exit without connecting.

       The  program will dump your MemoPad database (MemoDB.pdb) from the Palm
       and output format suitable for the Hi-Notes application to use.
