ADGNUMAILCONVERTER(1)       General Commands Manual      ADGNUMAILCONVERTER(1)



NAME
       ADGNUMAILCONVERTER - Convert GNUMail addresses to Addresses format

SYNOPSIS
       adgnumailconverter [filename]

DESCRIPTION
       adgnumailconverter converts old GNUMail addresses to Addresses format.

       The program uses the following heuristic to split GNUMail's name field
       into Addresses's first/last name fields:

       1.     Name contains a ",": Split it at the "," and put the first part
              into last name and the second part into first name.

               "Mueller, Fritz" -> "Mueller", "Fritz"

       2.     Name doesn't contain a ",": Split it at spaces and put the last
              part into last name and everything else into first name.

               "Johnny B. Goode" -> "Goode", "Johnny B."

OPTIONS
       adgnumailconverter only takes the filename of the GNUstep address book
       to convert (usually ~/GNUstep/Library/GNUMail/AddressBook).
