Hacking HP database files on a sun

Greetings,

I have just begun to hack at the HP databases from my ogo on
a sun using PERL. I got the format from some files (dbdoc.txt
and radio.txt) from Andrew Gryc of HP off of the web.

Q: Before I get too far into this, has anyone done this? Am I
duplicating effort?

What I want (minimally at first) is the ability to be able
to add phone book entries via a quick PERL program.

Ultimately I would like to be able to update the appointment
file as well.

Q: Does anyone know of information on the DB format of the
Appointment book? The docs from A. Gryc indicates that it
is different.

Thanx!
-Steve
