Diary: Version 0.4 (25/09/2006)
Author: Andy Broad <andy()broad.ology.org.uk>
Copyright: Andy Broad 2006

This is a first release of a simple to use Diary program.
It's 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,
Oh and it's a commodity.

Installation:

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

Usage:

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.
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
modified.

There is a minimal Arexx interface at present

LOAD APPEND/S,FORCE/S,FILE

    Load new diary file.
    APPEND - merges the new file with the currently loaded file
    FORCE  - don't show requester if existing file is modified

SAVE FILE/K

    Save diary file
    FILE  new file name to save too, if not present saves to original file.

SAVEAS FILE

    Save diary file
    FILE new file name to save to, if not present pops up File requester.

ADD AMIDATE/K/N,DATESTRING/K,TIME/K,TITLE/K/A,NOTE/K,REPEAT/K/N,REPEATTYPE/K/N,
    REPEATTILL/K,AMIENDDATE/K/N,ENDDATESTRING/K,ENDTIME/K

    add a new entry.

    AMIDATE,     AMIENDDATE,   -   start and finish time of event in secs since
amiga epoch (1 jan 1978)
    DATESTRING,     ENDDATESTRING,- start and end date in human readable format.
eg 12 September 2006
                   (Month and day names are localised)
    TIME, ENDTIME,- start and finish times in hours and minutes eg 21:30
    TITLE         - title of event
    NOTE          - note about event
    REPEAT        - is a repeating event number describes frequency.
    REPEATTYPE    - type of repeat 1 daily 2 weekly 3 monthly 4 yearly 5 same
day and week                     each month (eg first Thursday, second Tuesday)
    REPEATTILL    - string describing the end of repeating.


--- IMPORT is a quick and dirty tool which allows you to convert a Digita
Organiser 1.1
file to the new format. It works by creating a set of Arexx commands that can be
pasted into a script. Run this script to create your new diary.

eg:
>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
had 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
with caution, you may lose data.


KNOWN BUGS:

Adding a large number of events to a given day or creating events will long
title will distort the GUI.


TODO:

Improve the GUI.
Extend Localisation
Extend ARexx interface.
Add Alarms function
Add automation functions. (run commands at start and end of events)
Produce proper documentation (probably html)
