Author/Date Command line options

Hi Matthew,

When calling Scribe with command line parameters the subject string still becomes wrong if I use portuguese characters, for example:

"Devolução taxa justiça" becomes "Devolu?o taxa justi"

And the attached filename is case-sensitive (not big deal).

Win XP Pro, Test3


1. Any chance to call the calendar from command line with options like "open it in a given date" and "put this on for tomorrow" or "write down today in a text file"?

2. Any chance to attach more than one file and still define the body?

3. I like the buttons :)

Command line: This is a bug, I'll look at it soon.

Attach more than one file: maybe -f "file1,file2,file3" ?

Calendar scripting: Would being able to import vCal files (which included their own start/end date) work? With maybe another option to open the calendar at a certain date?

Thanks for the fast reply

>Attach more than one file: maybe -f "file1,file2,file3" ?

In your place I would choose something like -f @filelist.txt with the -b for each file, because of the limitation of command line lenght, and to be able to send attachments and still define the body, like:

file2.exe -b
file3.jpg -b

I think you got it :)
Your Calendar is great. I'm realy interested in supporting it from my App. I'll check that "vCal stuff" in your docs and post something here. Thanks again

I've fixed the accented chars in the command line. At least in Win2k.

I found iCal (not vCal), and I like the approach: it's easy to work with text files :)

I like the idea of a shared calendar too, and it's maybe the easier way to sell InScribe. By the way, you need another flag (-a) in command line ;)

How about signing the messages (like outlook)? it would be the perfect e-mail client -- I have about ????? clients waiting -- :)

iCal/vCal - same thing...

-a: huh? Whats it do?

Certificates: When I figure out how they work I'll write some code. But I havn't really had much luck with it yet. There is a lot of hard to read docs to get through. I know your waiting on it.

the signs "minor" and "major" eated it :)

I'm trying some tests with openSSL. Good luck

I still don't get this "-a" option?

Do you mean 'do a receive on account xyz'?

It's probably my english :)

With more than one account, how can we select the one we want to use to send a message (using command line options)?
By the way, I feel a similar problem when sending messages to people with more than one e-mail address: the soluction is to create more than one entry for the same person
