xcalpr - print xcal calendar entries SYNTAX
xcalpr [ -c ][ -x ][ -f file ][ -d dir ][ -u user ][ date-spec ] DESCRIPTION
Xcalpr prints the contents of the xcal files. It is intended to be used in situations when you have no access to an X screen. It can also be used to generate entries for the standard UNIX calendar program. With no arguments, it prints any entries that exist for the next seven days. The program also reads the contents of the seven daily files and prints them at the appropriate point in the output stream. Each line in the output is preceded by the day of the week, the day of the month, the month and the year. Xcalpr can be given a date specification to select months and years. If the date spec consists of just a year number, then all the data for that year is printed. For example: xcalpr 1994 will print all the data for 1994. Several years can be specified. If you give the name of a month, then the data for that month in the current year will be printed. If the month is in the past, then the data for that month next year will be printed. For example, if xcalpr oct jan is typed in August, xcalpr will print October in the current year and January next year. You can select a particular year by adding the number after any months that you need printing: xcalpr oct nov 1994 will print October and November in 1994. There are a couple of special `month' names. The name rest will print the data for the rest of the month, starting tomorrow. The rest argument is not recognised if you give a year as a parameter. If tomorrow happens to be the first day of the next month, then all the data for next month will be printed. The name next prints all the data for next month. OPTIONS
The -c option causes xcalpr to output lines suitable for input to the standard UNIX calendar program. The -d switch is followed by a directory name and specifies an alterative location for your Calendar directory. Your home directory is prepended if the name doesn't start with a slash or a dot. The -f option is followed by a file name and xcalpr will write it's output to that file, rather than standard output. The -u option is followed by a user name and dumps their calendar files rather than yours. The -x option makes xcalev operate with Calendar files that are compatible with the xcalendar program. FILES
$HOME/Calendar/* xc<dd><Mon><Year> A data file is day, Month in three letter format and the year. xy<Year> A year directory. xw<Day> A data file for the weekly code, one per day. SEE ALSO

cal, ncal -- displays a calendar and the date of easter SYNOPSIS
cal [-jy] [[month] year] cal [-j] -m month [year] ncal [-jJpwy] [-s country_code] [[month] year] ncal [-Jeo] [year] DESCRIPTION
The cal utility displays a simple calendar in traditional format and ncal offers an alternative layout, more options and the date of easter. The new format is a little cramped but it makes a year fit on a 25x80 terminal. If arguments are not specified, the current month is dis- played. The options are as follows: -J Display Julian Calendar, if combined with the -e option, display date of easter according to the Julian Calendar. -e Display date of easter (for western churches). -j Display Julian days (days one-based, numbered from January 1). -m month Display the specified month. -o Display date of orthodox easter (Greek and Russian Orthodox Churches). -p Print the country codes and switching days from Julian to Gregorian Calendar as they are assumed by ncal. The country code as deter- mined from the local environment is marked with an asterisk. -s country_code Assume the switch from Julian to Gregorian Calendar at the date associated with the country_code. If not specified, ncal tries to guess the switch date from the local environment or falls back to September 2, 1752. This was when Great Britain and her colonies switched to the Gregorian Calendar. -w Print the number of the week below each week column. -y Display a calendar for the specified year. A single parameter specifies the year (1 - 9999) to be displayed; note the year must be fully specified: ``cal 89'' will not display a calen- dar for 1989. Two parameters denote the month and year; the month is either a number between 1 and 12, or a full or abbreviated name as specified by the current locale. Month and year default to those of the current system clock and time zone (so ``cal -m 8'' will display a calendar for the month of August in the current year). A year starts on Jan 1. SEE ALSO

A cal command appeared in Version 5 AT&T UNIX. The ncal command appeared in FreeBSD 2.2.6. AUTHORS

The assignment of Julian--Gregorian switching dates to country codes is historically naive for many countries. BSD
