Sharp Address Book
« on: June 21, 2006, 02:11:49 pm »
Hi,

Where can I find the data within the sharp address book that's in the Cacko ROM?

Thanks!

I use Cacko Lite and I have "addressbook 1.23-lite-1" installed.
(This is the same addressbook that comes with Cacko 1.23 full)
The data files seem to be here:
/home/zaurus/Applications/dtm
My C3100 has 27 files in this directory.

BTW, when I was looking for these, I found my personal info here:
/home/zaurus/Applications/addressbook/businesscard.vcf
Open it in a text editor and you'll see your personal info,
(that is if you filled in this info, in Addressbook -> Data -> owner information...)

Yes and you can use 'zdbat' to read/write from/to the binary database files. I used it to write a small Palm to Zaurus Pim converter ( http://ldrolez.free.fr/software/zaurus/ ).

Can you use zdbat to turn these databases into a tab/comma separated text file?

You can also use dtm2xml to read and write in XML format.

I'm not very technical

All I really want to do is extract the sharp pim data to a spreadsheet or csv

I just downloaded it here:
http://ldrolez.free.fr/software/zaurus/
Using firefox browser right-click and save as....
In the screenshot, I hi-lighted the word "zbat" in RED.
It's in this line: (dark blue on black background)

5. for the address book run zdbat on the Zaurus : zdbat address -w -g -c utf8 < address.csv

(this is the link to zdbat_1.0.1-1_arm.ipk)
