perl script to convert an addressbook to VCARD file format

NAME

2vcard - convert addressbooks to VCARD format

SYNOPSIS

2vcard [ -F | -f | -h | -v ] [ -i FILE ] [ -o FILE ]

DESCRIPTION

2vcard is a little perl script to convert an addressbook to the popular VCARD file format. Currently, 2vcard can convert addressbooks and alias files from the following formats: abook, eudora, juno, ldif, mutt, mh and pine.
The VCARD format is used by gnomecard, for example, which, in turn is used by the balsa email client.

USAGE

Per default, 2vcard reads from stdin and writes to stdout. Alternatively, the input- and output-files can be specified as command-line options.

OPTIONS

A summary of the options supported by 2vcard is included below.
-F print a list of the currently supported formats
-f format
convert from format [ default: mutt ]
-h Show summary of options and exit.
-i FILE Read input from FILE.
-o FILE Write output to FILE.
-v Show version information and exit.

EXAMPLES

In a pipe:
tr ’^M’ ’\n’ < EudoraNicknames | 2vcard -f eudora > out
Alone: 2vcard -i ~/.aliases -o ~/.addbook.grcd
