NAME

       mhc - Message Harmonized Calendaring system

DESCRIPTION

       This  manual  page  documents briefly the mhc file format.  This manual
       page was written for the  Debian  GNU/Linux  distribution  because  the
       original program does not have a manual page.

FIELDS

       Mhc  file  format  is based on STD11/RFC822: Standard for the format of
       ARPA Internet text messages.  In mhc file, the following  extra  header
       fields are used.

       X-SC-Day:
              Date of event in format yyyymmdd.  You can specify multiple date
              with space separated like:

                 X-SC-Day: 19990409 19990413

              which means April 9th 1999 and April 13th 1999.

       X-SC-Time:
              Time of event in format hh:mm-hh:mm or hh:mm.  For  event  which
              has  no  meanings  about  time,  you  can leave it empty in this
              field.

       X-SC-Duration:
              Period of event in yyyymmdd-yyyymmdd.  You can omit  start  date
              or  end  date, like "19991121-".  X-SC-Duration: is used only to
              limit date specified by X-SC-Day: or  X-SC-Cond,  so  you  can’t
              describe  event  date only by X-SC-Duration:.  If X-SC-Duration:
              is empty, it means no limit.

       X-SC-Cond:
              Condition of event date by using following keyword.

                 00-31 Day of month.

                 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th Last Week in month.
