PC_QUERY(1)							   PC_QUERY(1)

NAME
       pc_query	- query	the local address book

SYNOPSIS
       pc_query	[OPTIONS] [SEARCHSTRING]

DESCRIPTION
       pc_query(1) prints contacts from	a local	address	book, synchronized
       with remote CardDAV resources with pycardsyncer(1). Contact information
       is kept in the vCard format, one	set of information, corresponding to a
       business	card, is therefore often referred to as	a card.	pc_query(1)
       can also	import and export vcards from/to the database. pc_query(1) is
       part of the pycarddav package.

OPTIONS
   BASIC STARTUP OPTIONS
       -a, --account=NAME
	   Only	use the	account/resource NAME (this option can be used more
	   than	once).

       -c, --config=CONFIG
	   Use the configuration file CONFIG, otherwise	pc_query(1) will look
	   in $HOME/.pycard/ and $HOME/.config/pycard/ for files named
	   pycard.conf.

       --debug
	   This	option enables debugging output.

       -h, --help
	   Print a small help text and exit.

       -v, --version
	   Print pc_query's version number and exit.

   PRINTING OPTIONS
       These options can only be used with SEARCHSTRING	and determine the
       output format of	pc_query(1). Without any options pc_query(1) will
       print the name, telephone numbers and email addresses of	all matching
       contact cards.

       -A
	   Prints the whole card.

       -m
	   Only	prints names and email addresses, in a mutt friendly format
	   (one	line per email address).

       -t
	   Only	prints names and telephone numbers, analogue to	-m (but	in
	   different sequence)

   FILE	INPUT AND OUTPUT OPTIONS
       -b, --backup='FILE
	   Backup the local db to BACKUP, if a SEARCHSTRING is present,	only
	   backup cards	matching it.

       --delete
	   Delete card matching	SEARCHSTRING, if more than one matches,	the
	   user	has to choose one card in an interactive user interface.

       -i, --import=FILE
	   Import vCard	from FILE or STDIN into	the first specified (or
	   default) account

   OTHER OPTIONS
       --where=MODE
	   Decides which part of the contact cards are matched against the
	   searchterm.	MODE is	one of vcard, name (the	structured name, as
	   used	in the vcard specification), fname (the	formated name, meaning
	   as is printed by pc_query) and allnames (allnames means search
	   fname as well as name). While only search through the names might
	   not find what you are looking for, it will considerably speed up
	   your	query.
