For developers, the command line inerface is huge! I just installed this little app, and I love it. Great idea. Would be nice if it could search the directories also, but I suspect that would cause some addiitional overhead and configuration problems. That being said, this is a great utility, nice job!

This is likely meant for people who access their computer remotely through telnet or SSH and want to be able to get to someone's contact information remotely as well. I think it's a wonderful program, and I think there should be more like it to help out those who are on the go.

Do many people use the terminal to do their computing?

If I never use the terminal, it would be too soon.
