Unix Version 7 - man page for calendar (v7 section 1)

CALENDAR(1)			     General Commands Manual			      CALENDAR(1)

NAME
       calendar - reminder service

SYNOPSIS
       calendar [ - ]

DESCRIPTION
       Calendar  consults  the file `calendar' in the current directory and prints out lines that
       contain today's or tomorrow's date anywhere in the line.  Most reasonable month-day  dates
       such  as  `Dec.	7,'  `december	7,' `12/7,' etc., are recognized, but not `7 December' or
       `7/12'.	On weekends `tomorrow' extends through Monday.

       When an argument is present, calendar does its job for every user who has a  file  `calen-
       dar'  in his login directory and sends him any positive results by mail(1).  Normally this
       is done daily in the wee hours under control of cron(8).

FILES
       calendar
       /usr/lib/calendar to figure out today's and tomorrow's dates
       /etc/passwd
       /tmp/cal*
       egrep, sed, mail subprocesses

SEE ALSO
       at(1), cron(8), mail(1)

BUGS
       Your calendar must be public information for you to get reminder service.
       Calendar's extended idea of `tomorrow' doesn't account for holidays.
