.. GCAL 1 "February 09, 1996"


gcal - displays month / year calendar sheets, eternal holiday lists for Julian- and Gregorian years and fixed date warning lists; in many ways.


gcal [[ Option... ] [ %Date ] [ @File... ]] [ Command ]


Gcal is a program similar the standard calendar programs BSD-`cal' and `calendar'. Gcal displays Gregorian calendars resp., Julian calendars (before September 1752). 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. The Gregorian Reformation is assumed to have occurred in 1752 on the 3'rd of September. Ten days following that date were eliminated by the reformation, so the calendar for that month is a bit unusual.


You get more program information if you start gcal as follows: gcal -h gcal -? gcal --help resp., 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.
