Text-based address book program.
This application is for managing addresses, e-mails, telephonenumbers and some other informations. Features are: Simple add, duplicate, edit, remove address entries; Alphabetical sort (surname or last name), searching.
It keeps its data in a simple text file, so it's easy to convert the addresses for other applications.
It also features some import and export filters, which reads from or writes to a user specified file. Press ? for help.
Hint: The export function doesn't want to overwrite a file, so it must be deleted by the user.
To use the e-mails in claws-mail, export it into a file like /media/.../pandora/appdata/abook/.abook/claws-mail.vcrd (Key e and f). Then import it in claws-mail. Other mailer could also work as the export filter can convert the address book into ldif/Netscape addressbook, mutt alias, pine addressbook, GnomeCard (VCard) addressbook, elm alias, plain text, etc.
