Hi Friends,

I am in the process of updating my LiveCode book 
(http://andregarzia.com/livecode/#livecode-advanced-application-architecture). 
The demo application for the book is an Address Book stack and while I 
was writing the "libraries" chapter, I remembered that long ago, I wrote 
an vCard/iCalendar library. I went to my old machines, found it, and it 
still works. I've updated it to be a plain-text stack and placed it 
online. Feel free to use it in any way you want. It can generate and 
parse both vCard 3 and iCalendar files while also providing enough 
low-level routines for you to generate your own "vObject"-based file 
formats.

I've also added some minimal documentation at 
https://soapdog.github.io/livecode-vobjectlib/#/, this is very 
incomplete. It is just a port of the old stack based documentation to 
text files. If there is enough interest, I can write more detailed 
documentation later.

One very cool anecdote is that this library was made in 2005, thats 14 
years ago. There are LiveCode users who are younger than that. It is old 
code which is not using any of the modern LC stuff and it still works 
well and fast. I am really happy with it. I hope you folks will benefit 
from it too.

Cheers

andre
