pilot-read-expenses - Export Palm Expense application data in a text format.  

SECTION

pilot-link: Userland conduits

 

SYNOPSIS


 pilot-read-expenses [-p|--port <port>] [-q|--quiet] [--version] [-?|--help] [--usage] [-w|--write]

 

DESCRIPTION


 pilot-read-expenses is used to output the Expense data in a simple text format, which can be used to import into any other application you wish, such as Excel or other application.

If you have expense entries saved on your Palm in the ExpenseDB.pdb file, you can export them to a simple text format, and redirect that to a file/pipe, or STDOUT (the default) using pilot-read-expenses.

The output data will resemble something like the following:


            Category: Unfiled Type:   5 Payment:   7 Currency:  23 Amount: 400.00 Vendor: Super Salads City: Westerly
            Attendees: Joe, Mary, Bob Note: Some simple note text Date: Fri May 9 00:00:00 2004
