CALENDAR(1)                Commands and Applications               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 Aug. 24, august 24, 8/24, and
       so on, are recognized, but not 24 August or 24/8.  On weekends ''tomor-
       row''  extends  through  Monday.   calendar can be invoked regularly by
       using the crontab(1) or at(1) commands.


EXAMPLE

       A common way to run calendar is to have  the  following  line  in  your
       gshrc file:

            /usr/games/calendar

       If the file $HOME/calendar contains entries like

            Dec 25    No more shopping days until Christmas.
            Jul 1     Dominion Day (Canada).

       then  the  appropriate  calendar entries will be printed every time you
       login in.


CAVEATS

       calendar's extended idea of ''tomorrow'' does not account for holidays.
