NAME

pc_query - query the local address book

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

pc_query [OPTIONS] [SEARCHSTRING]

DESCRIPTION

pc_query(1) prints contacts from a local address book, synchronized with remote CardDAV resources with pycardsyncer(1). Contact information is kept in the vCard format, one set of information, corresponding to a business card, is therefore often referred to as a card. pc_query(1) can also import and export vcards from/to the database. pc_query(1) is part of the pycarddav package.

OPTIONS

    BASIC STARTUP OPTIONS

-a, --account=NAME

Only use the account/resource NAME (this option can be used more than once).

-c, --config=CONFIG

Use the configuration file CONFIG, otherwise pc_query(1) will look in $HOME/.pycard/ and $HOME/.config/pycard/ for files named pycard.conf.

--debug

This option enables debugging output.

-h, --help

Print a small help text and exit.

-v, --version

Print pc_query\(cqs version number and exit.

    PRINTING OPTIONS

These options can only be used with SEARCHSTRING and determine the output format of pc_query(1). Without any options pc_query(1) will print the name, telephone numbers and email addresses of all matching contact cards.

-A

Prints the whole card.

-m

Only prints names and email addresses, in a mutt friendly format (one line per email address).

-t

Only prints names and telephone numbers, analogue to -m (but in different sequence)

    FILE INPUT AND OUTPUT OPTIONS

-b, --backup=FILE

Backup the local db to BACKUP, if a SEARCHSTRING is present, only backup cards matching it.

--delete

Delete card matching SEARCHSTRING, if more than one matches, the user has to choose one card in an interactive user interface.

-i, --import=FILE

Import vCard from FILE or STDIN into the first specified (or default) account

    OTHER OPTIONS

--where=MODE

Decides which part of the contact cards are matched against the searchterm. MODE is one of vcard, name (the structured name, as used in the vcard specification), fname (the formated name, meaning as is printed by pc_query) and allnames (allnames means search fname as well as name). While only search through the names might not find what you are looking for, it will considerably speed up your query.
