       hnb - Hierarchical notebook


       hnb [file] [options] [command [command] .. ]


       This manual page documents briefly the hnb hierarchical notebook.

       hnb  is an ncurses program to organize many kinds of data in one place,
       for example addresses, todo lists, ideas,  book  reviews  or  to  store
       snippets of brainstorming, to make a structured packing list or just to
       take random notes.  It can export ascii/html/latex/postscript, supports
       todo checkboxes, checkbox trees with percentages and searching.

       hnb  uses  a simple ascii file for storing your notes. This file can be
       specified on the command line. If not specified, ~/.hnb is  loaded  (or
       created if missing).


       hnb can be invoked with the following options:

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options.

       -v, --version
              Show version of program.

       -t, --tutorial
              Load the tutorial instead of a database.

       -rc <file>
              Load an other config file than default.

       -ui <curses|cli>
              Specify user interface to use.

       -e     Run  commands  in noninteractive mode (start hnb with the cli ui
              and type ‘help’ to get more information).


       ~/.hnb The default file for your notes. To use an  other,  specify  its
              name on the command line.

              The  default  configuration  file.  To load an other config file
              than default, use the -rc command-line option.


       For more information on the usage of the  program,  load  the  tutorial
       using  hnb --tutorial and consult Documentation.hnb.  On Debian systems
       you can read it with hnb /usr/share/doc/hnb/Documentation.hnb
