NAME


abook - text-based address book program

SYNOPSIS


abook [ OPTION ]

DESCRIPTION


This manual page documents briefly the abook program. This manual page was written for
the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual
page.

abook is a text-based address book program. It contains Name, Email, Address and various
Phone fields. It is designed for use with mutt, but can be equally useful on its own.
