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.
