Output to STDOUT (the screen)
addresses [-p <port>]
This will dump the same information (shown above, in the same
format as above) to the screen or wherever you may have directed
STDOUT to on your system.
DESCRIPTIONaddresses will connect to your Palm handheld and dump all entries found
in the AddressDB.pdb (Address Book) file to STDOUT (generally the
screen) or, if redirected with the '>' (greater-than) character, it
will redirect to a file of your choosing (called "MyAddresses.txt in
the above example, but may be called any other filename you wish).
There is only one option (and it is, well, optional), and that is the
'>' redirection character to send the output to a file (or process)
instead of STDOUT (generally "The Screen[tm]")
The program will read Address data from the Palm handheld and output a
format suitable for the other programs to import as required. You may
redirect the output to a file or process, at your choosing.
addresses [-p <port>] > MyAddresses.txt # redirect to a file (or
addresses [-p <port>] # print to STDOUT/the screen
