|key_fields||A list of PDB field names (not cannonical names) which can be used to uniquely identify a database record. Ideally the id field of PDB records would be used here, but currently it is not. Name,First name is recommended.|
A perl statment which, when evald, returns a comma-delimited list of phone labels.
Valid phone labels are: Work,Home,Fax,Other,E-Mail,Main,Pager,Mobile. The result of
the evald phone_display will be used to determine which phone label is default shown
in the PalmOS address list. The first label in the comma-delimited list is used unless
the record has no value for that label, in which case the second label is used unless
it also has no value, in which case the third is used, and so on....
In the phone_display string, other attributes may be referenced as $<attr>.
For example, if you want the priority of default phone lables to be Work,Home,E-Mail for all records in the Business category, and the priority to be Home,Work,E-Mail for all records in all other categories, you could use the following:
|intra_attr_sep_char||The character to use when joining multi-valued fields. The default is & .|
$a = AddressBook->new(source => "PDB"); $a = AddressBook->new(source => "PDB", port => "/dev/pilot");
If a pdb parameter is supplied, it will be used as a reference to an already created PDA::Pilot::DLP::DBPtr object. Otherwise, if a port is supplied, the user will be prompted to press the hotsync button to establish the connection.
For syncronization purposes, all records which have the modified flag set are timestamped with the current time. All records with have the modified flag unset are timestamped with 0 (very, very old).
PDB records which have the deleted flag set are removed as part of the initialization process. The archive flag is ignored.
For convienience, a records category is treated like any other attribute. New categories are created as necessary. Moving a record to a new category will achieve the expected result during synchronization. However, because renaming a category does not cause affected records to be marked as modified, category renaming operations will be lost during synchronization.
