Description: This code converts a Palms Addressbook to Sylpheeds addressbook. It uses XML::Writer, Palm::Addressbook (and parent modules). Sylpheed is a GTK+ based, lightweight, and fast e-mail client.
See comments for more info.

# Yes, this is copyright by me.

# Palm::Address converter to Sylpheed's XML Format
# Format tested on Sylpheed 0.6.4
# See http://sylpheed.good-day.net

# Yes, I do know Sylpheed can do this too but that feature failed to c
+ompile for me
# You need to edit addrbook--index.xml so it has an entry as shown bel
+ow.
#    <book name="Palm" file="addrbook-000003.xml" />
# The bookname can be changed but you'll need to change the source too
+.
# You need to rename/move the output to the .sylpheed directory in you
+r homedir
