- remind.el - put this somewhere in your load-path or in your home directory. - plan2rem - make this executable and put it somewhere in your path (/usr/local/bin, for example) - rem2diary - make this executable and put it somewhere in your path (/usr/local/bin, for example) - the remind program, available as a Debian package (and probably as an RPM) - Emacs, of course.

How to specify a reminder in your planner file
In a day planner file (yyyy.mm.dd, like 2002.10.08), appointments can be of the form:
hh:mm | Your message here
hh:mm | Your message here (hh:mm)
where ending time is parenthesized.
Generate a reminders file
The reminder and diary files are automatically regenerated when you save a planner file. If you want to change this behavior, read remind.el
Check your reminders
M-x diary RET
to see the reminders.
