We have added Dana to our address book. And can thus use the following:

//echo -a $abook(Dana).info  ;will return DDB v5 - #help.script servicebot by cmouse&k0sm0s
//echo -a $abook(Dana).website  ;will return http://script.quakenet.org/
//echo -a $abook(Dana).note2  ;will return the second note saved with her

//echo -a $abook(1).nick  ;will return Dana if she is number 1 and/or the only one in the address book.
//echo -a $abook(Dan*,1).nick  ;will return Dana since that is the first address book entry matching the given wildcard.
