Thanks Pawel  :-)

Yes -- I intend to produce an awk script for the following use case:

1. Export calendar from Xfce's Orage (events only, initially no "To Do"s or
2. awk script to process the Orage export file:
   a) Remove events outside a settable date range.
   b) Convert recurring events to a series of single events.
3. Test by gnokii writecalendar to Nokia 5130c-2

My C is very rusty so it may be less work for you to use the awk as an
algorithm prototype than to clean up my attempts to contribute C to gnokii.
To be decided.
