UPDATE: contacts.ipd is attached, the typical .ipd will contain more databases, ie SMS, Contacts, MMS etc all in one file. However PPH limits file sizes to 1mb and cannot be attached here.

For more info about the file format please also read:

In contacts.ipd fields are labelled, ie Email1 is Primary Email address, Email2 is Secondary Email Address etc...

Access to a blackberry or alternative .IPD files would be ideal for a candidate as they could test it with their own files.



I'm looking for a developer who can write a program which extracts data from .IPD files (specifically Blackberry backup files stored in this format).

The program should be able to extract, and print the following information in the terminal: Contacts, Calendar, SMS, MMS (text fields, attachments such as jpg's not necessary), Email and Call Log.

The output should be in comma separated values, and provide all information from the specified databases. Can provide examples of how this should look as well as .IPD files for testing purposes only.

Ideally the program should be from a Linux developer, however it is possible for a Windows emulator to be used to run the program.

There are also a lot more ideas, meaning the potential for further work on this program, such as MMS attachment extraction as well as extracting much more information, such as PIN etc.
