oz2remind is a tool to convert OpenZaurus Opie calendar XML files to Remind format.

It's a small but useful Perl script to convert the datebook.xml file used by the calendar app in OpenZaurus' Opie to Remind format.

About Remind:

Remind is a sophisticated calendar and alarm program. It includes the following features:

· A sophisticated scripting language and intelligent handling of exceptions and holidays.
· Plain-text, PostScript and HTML output.
· Timed reminders and pop-up alarms.
· A friendly graphical front-end for people who don't want to learn the scripting language.
· Facilities for both the Gregorian and Hebrew calendars.
· Support for 12 different languages.

About OpenZaurus:

The OpenZaurus project was created as an alternative Operating System for the Sharp Zaurus Personal Mobile Tool. The original purpose behind the project was to create a system (kernel + root filesystem) which was a bit closer to what the developer community specifically desired. The method by which this was accomplished was simply to use the Sharp ROM as a base and make alterations, bugfixes, additions and even removals, where necessary, to make the package more open.

Shortly after this, it was revamped completely. OpenZaurus was then a Debian based embedded distribution built from source, from the ground up. Given its debian roots, it is quite similar to other embedded Debian-based distributions, such as Familiar for the Ipaq. This means of doing things also facilitates an easy method for users to build their own custom system images.

Current Versions of OpenZaurus are built from the OpenEmbedded Build system, this was again a complete rebuild of the entire distribution from scratch.
