This is a small console program similar to knotes, which
allows you to manage notes from commandline.
Note can use different database-backends for notes-storage.
It ships with a DBI-based mysql-module (which can also be
used by others through a DBI-based supported DBMS)
and another module, which uses a binary file for storage
and a DBM module.
