Hi all,

remind (http://www.roaringpenguin.com/products/remind)
is a very
powerful command line calendaring program. Its features superseed
the possibilities of orgmode in the area of date specifying,
so that I want to use it combined with orgmode.

Using the script below I'm able use remind and incorporate its output
in my agenda views.
The default of using 13 months look ahead is easily changed. It just
happens I sometimes like to look a year into the future. :-)

Any comments welcome! Be friendly ;-) , that's my first python program
ever. So it may be stupid as hell and bad python style.

There is no sophisticated logic to get nice orgmode output.
I only cared to get all dates. Nevertheless it does what I need.

Hope someone finds this useful.

Carsten: Btw. I think the headings "orgmode to XXX" and "XXX to
orgmode" must be exchanged!

#!/usr/bin/python
# coding=utf-8
# remind2org.py converts the simple calendar output from remind
# in files suitable for orgmode.
# Two arguments are expected:
# - first argument: filename for remind input file
# - second argument: filename for orgmode output file
# Version: 0.1
# Notice: You must include the outputfile in your org-agenda-files
