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 `calendar' 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  ser-
       vice.
       Calendar's extended idea of `tomorrow' doesn't account for holidays.
