Any directions on how to use this, if I'm running OS X.1.3 and not
exactly experienced with (i.e. have never used) perl as a script? What
needs to be running for this to work? I exported my Newton Names to
Entourage, then to my iPod, but that was a serious pain in the neck.
This would be a nicer scenario that actually kept as much information
from the Newt as possible...
