Hi,
I agree I was making a mistake by putting 'space' between + and statement.
But still I am not able to assign the day to variable. I tried using excape character also i.e \' \' ' but no use.
Now my command looks like

DAY='date | cut -f 1 -d \' \''

I am using ksh. and on SUn SOlaris.

thanks
Himanshu

TCAL(1) 						      General Commands Manual							   TCAL(1)

NAME
Tcal - runs the Gcal program with the date of tomorrow's day. SYNOPSIS
tcal [--help | --version] | [--shift=[+|-]number] [Argument...] DESCRIPTION
Tcal is a program which runs gcal with a date set one day ahead (equivalent the --shift=1 option). All given arguments are passed unmodi- fied to the Gcal program. If the Gcal program shall be called with another date than tomorrow's date, this desired date can be selected by using the --shift=[+|-]number option, in which [+|-]number is the distance of days the desired date is distant from the actual date (works only for Gregorian years). The --shift option must be given before all other arguments which are passed to the Gcal program. An exit status of 0 means all processing is successfully done, any other value means an error has occured. OPTIONS
--help Print a usage message listing all available options, then exit successfully. --version Print the version number, then exit successfully. --shift=[+|-]number Define the displacement in [+|-]number days the desired date is distant from the actual date. ENVIRONMENT
GCALPROG The GCALPROG environment variable contains the file name of the executable Gcal program, which is used by Tcal to call Gcal. This takes precedence over the file name `gcal', which is burned-in during the compilation step of tcal. COPYRIGHT
