NAME
Gcal - a program for calculating and printing calendars. SYNOPSIS
gcal [[Option...] [%Date] [@File...]] [Command] DESCRIPTION
Gcal is a program similar the standard calendar programs BSD-`cal' and `calendar'. Gcal displays hybrid and proleptic Julian and Gregorian calendar sheets, respectively, for one month, three months or a whole year. It also displays eternal holiday lists for many countries around the globe, and features a very powerful creation of fixed date lists that can be used for reminding purposes. Gcal can calculate various astronomical data and times of the Sun and the Moon for at pleasure any loca- tion, precisely enough for most civil purposes. Gcal supports some other calendar systems, for example the Chinese and Japanese calendar, the Hebrew calendar and the civil Islamic calendar, too. If Gcal is started without any options or commands, a calendar of the current month is displayed. If the calendar of a definite year is wanted, the year must be fully specified, e.g.: gcal 94 displays a year calendar of the year 94, not of the year 1994. If two arguments are given in the command part, the first argument denotes the month and the second argument denotes the year. In case any illegal commands are given running Gcal , the program will use internal defaults. MORE PROGRAM INFORMATION
You obtain more program information if you start Gcal as follows: gcal -h gcal -? gcal --help respectively, gcal -hh gcal -?? gcal --long-help[=ARG]|[=?] gcal --usage[=ARG]|[=?] A Hypertext file gcal.info containing detailed online information should be available, which you can inspect using your GNU Infobrowser.

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
