Diary: Version 1.4 (06/01/2012)
Author: Andy Broad <andy()broad.ology.org.uk>
Copyright: Andy Broad 2006-2016

This is the latest  release of a simple to use Diary program.
Original conceived as an AmigaOS4 replacement for the Digita Organiser
but is not intended to be a direct clone of that program. It has a
GUI styled on a traditional paper diary and also an Arexx interface,


Copy the contents of the archive to the location of your choice.
say Work:Organiser.


The archive contains two programs Diary and import.

DIARY is the main program. It can be run from CLI or workbench.

Tooltypes / command line options

FILE          - the diary file to be loaded. If not set when starting from
                a Project icon the filename will be derived from the icon.
MODE/K        - window mode to open in DAYS WEEK or MONTH  
CX_POPUP/K    - set to YES to open window on program start. (defaults to YES)
CX_POPKEY/K   - sets the popup hotkey, defaults to "ctrl alt d"
CX_PRIORITY/K - set the commodity priority

The GUI is fairly simple, click on EDIT / DELETE to toggle modes, in edit mode
clicking on a day gadget will bring up a window to enter a new event entry.
Clicking on an event title will allow editing an existing event. In delete mode
clicking on and event allows to remove it. (with warning req!)

Before iconification or quiting Diary will ask you to save if the diary was

IMPORT is a quick and dirty tool which allows you to convert a Digita Organiser
file to the new format. It works by creating a set of Arexx commands that can be
into a script. Run this script to create your new diary.

>work:Organiser/Import Ram:olddiaray >ram:new.rexx

Then edit new.rexx adding

/* */

options results
address DIARY

to the beginning of the file.

You may well find you need to edit the arexx commands by hand, particularly if
quotes or apostrophes in any of your titles or notes.

It works quite well for a 1.1 file may not work at all for later versions. Use
caution, you may lose data.
