+;; BBDBpalm exports your BBDB address database to your Palm/USR/3Com
+;; Pilot/PalmPilot/Palm-Connected-Organizer (hereinafter simply "Palm").
+;; BBDB is a sort of electronic address book written by Jamie Zawinsky
+;; <email@example.com> that integrates nicely with Emacs-based E-mail and Usenet
+;; clients. BBDBpalm lets you bring that address book with you if you
+;; don't have the luxury of 24/7 network access to a remote Emacs session
+;; from your Palm.
+;; The Web page is `http://www.neilvandyke.org/bbdbpalm/'.
+;; This package is no longer being maintained.
+;; BBDBpalm was developed with BBDB 1.51, which is available at
+;; `http://www.jwz.org/bbdb/' if you don't already have it. It has also
+;; been reported to work with BBDB 2.00.02.
+;; BBDBpalm uses the `pilot-addresses' program, which is part of the
+;; Pilot-Link package. Pilot-Link is freely available on the 'net, and is
+;; included with some GNU/Linux distributions. The master sources are
+;; available at `ftp://ryeham.ee.ryerson.ca/pub/PalmOS/', although you may
+;; wish to instead find a pre-compiled distribution for your operating
+;; system. BBDBpalm was tested with version 0.9.0.
+;; BBDBpalm was developed under GNU Emacs 20.3 running atop the GNU/Linux
+;; platform. It will probably work with Emacs 19 and has been reported to
+;; work under XEmacs 21.2b17. It will probably work under Emacs on other
+;; Unix variants. Please let me know if you encounter any problems with
+;; other Emacsen or Unixen.
+;; If you're Emacs-savvy enough to be using BBDB, then you probably don't
+;; need much install instructions. The only three non-obvious things you
+;; need to do are:
+;; 1. On your Palm, add an Address List category called "BBDB", in all
+;; caps. (Reason: Unfortunately, `pilot-addresses' does not presently
+;; create categories on your Palm, or overwrite duplicate entries.
+;; So, every time we upload to the Palm, we blast everything in the
+;; "BBDB" category and put all the BBDB-exported records into that
+;; category.) If you change entries on the Palm side of things,
+;; change their category so that you remember to manually propagate
+;; the change to BBDB.
+;; 2. If you don't want to export everything in your BBDB to the Palm,
+;; then do both of:
+;; a. Put the following your `.emacs' file or wherever you put your
+;; Emacs customizations:
+;; (setq bbdbpalm-export-all-p nil)
+;; b. Add a field called `palm' to each BBDB record that you wish to
+;; export (by pressing `C-o' in the `*BBDB*' buffer with the
+;; point on the desired record). Give each `palm' field a value
+;; of `yes' for now. Note that a later version of BBDBpalm might
+;; put something else in that field.
+;; 3. If you wish to have titles for people be exported to the Palm, add
+;; a field called `title' to BBDB and use it.
+;; Tom Fawcett <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote `bbdb-pilot', which is available
+;; at `ftp://ftp.croftj.net/usr/fawcett/bbdb-pilot.el'. The version I
+;; found, dated 1998, didn't seem to do what I wanted (I'm so picky) but
+;; you may prefer it.
+;; Neale Picket <email@example.com> hacked up a small convertor in
+;; Feb-1998. See `http://acm.rpi.edu/~albert/pilot/Feb98/0039.html'.
+;; THINGS TO DO:
+;; * Add support for custom fields.
+;; * Add special support for `Web' custom field.
+;; * Maybe someday do bidirectional sync-ing. For now, users should just
+;; keep all the BBDB-exported records in the `BBDB' category on their
+;; Palm, and manually change those records on the BBDB end rather than on
+;; the Palm end.
+;; * Maybe I should make it fix certain family names that BBDB has
+;; mis-parsed, such as, well... I dunno... how about... "Van Dyke"?
+;; Better yet, I should move to BBDB 2.x and make sure it's fixed there.
+;; * Make it be smarter about which address it picks if there are multiple
+;; * Add BBDB extension so that it prompts you for `palm' field.
+;; * Make it reformat phone numbers.
+;; * Add completion-percentage indicator for file-exporting and uploading.
+;; * Check for error from `pilot-addresses' and maybe do something with it.
+;; * ``I think it would be nice if the order of phone numbers as they
+;; appear in the BBDB was preserved in the Pilot. Same thing for multiple
+;; email addresses; they are now listed in reverse order.'' [Mark Moll
+;; <firstname.lastname@example.org>, 24-Jun-1999]
+;; * ``Maybe it's a good idea to put in a message "Please press the HotSync
+;; button" at the appropiate time.'' [Mark Moll <email@example.com>,
+;;; Change Log:
+;; [Version 0.3, 2006-11-12] Made `bbdbpalm-format-record' work with newer BBDB
+;; versions by use of `bbdb-address-streets'. Thanks to Christoph Conrad for
+;; the patch. Note that I do not have access to a Palm and cannot test this
+;; [Version 0.2, 2002-10-15] I no longer have access to a Palm, so I am not
+;; maintaining this package. This release is a snapshot of my last modified
+;; version, which fixes a typo in jwz's name (writes one observant BBDBpalm
+;; user: ``jwz's spelling of his last name differs a bit from yours. If
+;; "Zawinksy" an in-joke, it's probably funny.''), and updates my email
+;; [Version 0.1, 1999-06-23] Initial release.
