Re: Palm-Tool (something like JPilot) for console?

Hi Maurits,

I already have pilot-xfer installed. I use it to get data out of my
Palm. But it is binary data I can not edit. What I search is a
console tool to edit my todos, appointments, etc. based on this data
and then sync it back to my Palm. I'm using JPilot at the moment to
achieve this but a non-X program would be more my way :)

KPilot is still very buggy. Allthough I have a very old Palm V, it
still doesn't work very well (using KDE 3.3.2, built from source).

But using pilot-xfer and JPilot shouldn't cause any trouble as
pilot-xfer writes the data to another directory than JPilot does
(default: ~/.jpilot/).
