       Gcal - a program for calculating and printing calendars.


       gcal [[Option...] [%Date] [@File...]] [Command]


       Gcal is a program similar the standard calendar programs BSD-`cal' and `calendar'.

       Gcal displays hybrid and proleptic Julian and Gregorian calendar sheets, respectively, for
       one month, three months or a whole year.  It also displays eternal holiday lists for  many
       countries around the globe, and features a very powerful creation of fixed date lists that
       can be used for reminding purposes.  Gcal can  calculate  various  astronomical  data  and
       times  of  the  Sun  and  the Moon for at pleasure any location, precisely enough for most
       civil purposes.  Gcal supports some other calendar systems, for example  the  Chinese  and
       Japanese calendar, the Hebrew calendar and the civil Islamic calendar, too.

       If  Gcal  is  started  without any options or commands, a calendar of the current month is

       If the calendar of a definite year is wanted, the year must be fully specified,
       e.g.:  gcal 94
       displays a year calendar of the year 94, not of the year 1994.

       If two arguments are given in the command part, the first argument denotes the  month  and
       the  second argument denotes the year. In case any illegal commands are given running Gcal
       , the program will use internal defaults.


       You obtain more program information if you start Gcal as follows:
       gcal -h
       gcal -?
       gcal --help


       gcal -hh
       gcal -??
       gcal --long-help[=ARG]|[=?]
       gcal --usage[=ARG]|[=?]
