CAL(1)                       BSD Reference Manual                       CAL(1)

NAME

     cal - displays a calendar

SYNOPSIS

     cal [-jy] [[month] year]

DESCRIPTION

     cal displays a simple calendar. If arguments are not specified, the
     current month is displayed.

     The options are as follows:

     -j      Display Julian dates (days one-based, numbered from January 1).

     -y      Display a calendar for the current year.

     A single parameter specifies the year (1 - 9999) to be displayed; note
     the year must be fully specified: "cal 89" will not display a calendar
     for 1989. Two parameters denote the month (1 - 12) and year. If no param-
     eters are specified, the current month's calendar is displayed.

     A year starts on January 1st.

     The Gregorian Reformation is assumed to have occurred in 1752 after the
     2nd of September. By this time, most countries had recognized the refor-
     mation (although a few did not recognize it until the early 1900's).
     Eleven days following that date were eliminated by the reformation, so
     the calendar for that month is a bit unusual.

     tionality.
