4.1.

What configuration files does KonsoleKalendar use?

None.

4.2.

What are the application names of KonsoleKalendar?

KonsoleKalendar's application name is konsolekalendar.

4.3.

What is the date specification format?

KonsoleKalendar will reject dates specified on the command line unless they are specified according to ISO 8601 standards, namely: YYYY-MM-DD. Where YYYY represents a four-digit year (like 2003), MM represents a two-digit month (01,02,..,12), and DD represents a two-digit day (01,02,...,31).

KonsoleKalendar always exports dates according to the ISO 8601 format.

4.4.

What is the time specification format?

KonsoleKalendar will reject times specified on the command line unless they are specified according to ISO 8601 standards, namely: HH:MM:SS. Where HH represents a two-digit hour (01,02,...,24), MM represents a two-digit minute (01,02,..,60), and SS represents a two-digit second (01,02,...,60).

KonsoleKalendar always exports times according to the ISO 8601 format.

4.5.

Will KonsoleKalendar insert a new event that is identical to one that already exists in the calendar?

No. See next question.

4.6.

How does KonsoleKalendar determine if an event is identical to one that already exists in the calendar?

KonsoleKalendar checks the specified start date and time, end date and time, and summary against all events in the calendar. An event match is determined if all three values match to an existing event.

4.7.

Can a non-floating event be changed to a floating event?

Yes. Use the --time float option with --change.

4.8.

Why are event UIDs printed in most export formats?

Because you need to specify UIDs to delete or change events. If you do not want to see event UIDs then use the short export type (--export-type short).
