NAME: pscal SYNOPSIS: pscal [-hmnRrv] [-d diameter] [-eFf font] [-L language] [-c country] [month [year]] DESCRIPTION: `Pscal' is a PostScript program to print calendars. The PostScript code is sent to stdout, so either pipe it to your printer or redirect it to a file. OPTIONS: The shell variables BANNER, LFOOT, CFOOT, and RFOOT become a top centered banner, and left, centered, or right justified footers respectively. As in: BANNER="Schedule 1"; CFOOT=Preliminary; pscal 4 1990 -c Country to use for holidays. Use ISO two letters code. only one country can be specified. pscal will try to dowload an iCal calendar online and then parse it to use as the holiday file. the -L option affects this option, as you can, for example, print brazilian holidays using the italian language. It will not overwrite any file. so every year you have to clean them. FILES: The file $HOME/.holiday is read and used to print short messages on specified days. The .holiday file should consist of lines of the form month:day: message string Messages should be 20 characters or less, with no more than 6 messages per day. No spaces should appear from the beginning of a line until after the second colon. Month and day should be numbers in the obvious ranges. 12/89 - The holiday checking has been loosened up in that the following takes place: 1. The Shell Variable EFILE is used preferentially 2. Then the file Events in the current directory is used 3. Finally the $HOME/.holiday file is used. The whole process can be turned off by setting EFILE=/dev/null.

BUGS: * `Pscal' doesn't work for months before 1753. (Weird stuff happened in September, 1752.) It also won't work right as of January 1, 9600. (Bump up the epoch date if you want it to.) * A better format for the dates of holidays would be nice. * An escape to allow holiday messages to be raw PostScript would also be nice. * The holiday messages should be handled more intelligently (i.e., the messages should be clipped to the day). * Some of the message translations are incomplete. * Encoding in the downloaded holiday calendar is UTF8, calendar output is latin1 SEE ALSO: pcal: - a C derivative of an early version of pscal - if pscal doesn't do what you want, check pcal; it has many options - http://www.geocities.com/SunsetStrip/Palms/5555/PS/
