The Glasgow MathsJam meets on the second-to-last Tuesday of the month. I, like many other people in these degenerate days, keep my appointments and other events in a trusted external system, which in my case is Google Calendar. The iCal spec provides for events recurring on, for instance, the second-to-last Tuesday of the month. Google Calendar does not implement this part of the spec. Hence, this program. REQUIREMENTS You'll need the Perl interpreter installed; this comes installed by default on all non-stupid operating systems. If you're unfortunate enough to be using a stupid operating system, visit http://www.perl.org for download instructions. You will need to install the following CPAN modules: * Data::ICal * Data::ICal::DateTime * DateTime::Event::Recurrence On most Unix systems, this is as simple as typing cpan Data::ICal Data::ICal::DateTime DateTime::Event::Recurrence at a command-prompt and possibly answering some easy questions. USAGE Edit the file create.pl so that the $start and $end variables cover the range of dates you care about. [Yes, this is ugly. Patches plz?] Run the program, and capture the output: ./create.pl > mathsjam.ics Import mathsjam.ics into your calendaring program, or stick it up on the Web, or whatever you want to do with it.
