Handy project is a small console program to convert the output of Lotus Notes client version 5.x or 6.x into a vCal Version 2.0 file
Handy project is a small console program to convert the output of Lotus Notes client version 5.x or 6.x into a vCal Version 2.0 file and/or sends the appointments to a cellphone of type SIEMENS S45 and maybe S35 also.
In general it should be able to handle every device, that understands the vCal standard. But that's untested!
First, you should have a Lotus Notes client version 5.x or 6.x available, where you manage your appointments. I assume, you're running this client on Linux under Wine, of course.
However. Start Lotus Notes, open the appointment scheduler and choose the menu point "File->export". Tell it to export all appointments, give it a file name and save the file as "Structured Text".
Now you have what you need to import into the Organizer of KDE 3.x and/or send to your cell phone.
With the command line option -h or --help you get detailed help. The program was tested with the cell phone SIEMENS S45 but should also work with SIEMENS S35, or any other device that understand the vCal 2.0 format.
Since version 0.3.0 the program converts also repeating entries as well as holidays. Only alert settings are still not supported, but a basic concept is already implemeted.
In case you have questions or suggestions, don't hesitate to write me an email. Patches to my source are also welcome!
What's New in This Release:
A switch was added to omit line feeds in the commands of the output file.
This should make the output file importable on a Palm too.
