NAME
       addresses  -  Dumps the Palm Address Book entries to STDOUT in a simple
       format.

SYNOPSIS
       Redirect to a specified output file:

       addresses [-p <port>] > MyAddresses.txt
	 (Note the redirect) ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

	      This will dump the Address Book from your	 Palm  into  the  file
	      MyAddresses.txt  in the format that looks similar to the follow‚Äź
	      ing format:

	      Category: Personal Businesses
	      Last name: Doe
	      First name: Jane
	      Company: Acme, Inc.
	      Work: +1 (800) GO-ACME
	      Home: jdoe@acme.org
	      Address: 123 Main Street
	      City: Anywhere
	      State: CA
	      Zip Code: 01234-5678
	      Country: USA
	      Title: Chief Annoyance Officer

       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.

DESCRIPTION
       addresses 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).

OPTIONS
       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]")

USAGE
       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
       process/pipe)
       addresses [-p <port>]			 # print to STDOUT/the screen
