Does that imply that evo must be running to access the address book? Or
can one statically link to an evo library that lets one insert or
extract values?

you have to have part of it running (wombat), yes.

I suspect the original poster wants to write an import/export utility.
'Twould be nice not to need a running evo to accomplish that.

then you risk database corruption. Do yourself a favour and use the
CORBA interfaces to add/extract entries from the addressbook and don't
use libdb3 directly or you *will* be sorry.
