not sure what version we're using, but should that work? Can I impliment it using the method you gave me for searching?
I can use this to delete a contact? Using sed -I /$forename/d ~/.addr_book?
thanks that's great. It would be better to use if statement so that if it can't find a contact matching that that it'll return a message?

dialog --inputbox "Enter contact...
Separate names with a comma.
