daterem is a little script to help you with daily due dates.

daterem.dat needs to be in the directory where you execute / The format is pretty simple please look into the provided file for examples.

The perl script "" is the original version. It currently lacks support for "countdown" and the script will be removed in the near future.

Call without any parameters to see the reminders for today, call it with a year to see all reminders for the year, call it with month and year - separated by a dot and you get all the reminders for the specific month and - you might have expected this - call it with day, month and year to see the reminders for the specific date.

usage: [-h] [-f FILE] [-b BORN] [-d DEAD] [date]

A simple date reminder.

positional arguments:
  date                  search for a specific date [[[dd.]mm.]yyyy] (default: today)

  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
