calendar - reminder service
calendar [ - ]
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).
/usr/lib/calendar to figure out today's and tomorrow's dates

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