NAME

CLark - collect bookmarks on your command-line

SYNOPSIS

clark [<options>...] [<command> [<options>...] [<arguments>...]]

DESCRIPTION

CLark is a bookmarking program for the command-line. It is meant to interface with other programs to make its use easy, whilst remaining free of being locked in to any single browser or program (except for itself). This should allow you to keep your bookmarks in a single, easily accessible, place regardles of which browser you use at any moment.

CLark?! What the …?

I’ve been working on this program for a long time, though not very intensely, and it’s gone through a few names.

At first I absolutely wanted to write it in C, and I named it linkwave. I made a little program that could store given URLs with names and descriptions, but not much else than that.

Then I started messing around with Lisp and some of its derivatives, such as chicken scheme. And then I thought it would be much cooler to (re)write this in scheme! I named it markam, because Markam collects books.

Now, I’m thinking that it would be much cooler still to write the thing in Common Lisp! So I name it CLark, because it is Common Lisp, and a rewrite of mARKam.

COMMANDS

Each command has it’s own arguments and description, to see:
