       hdate - Hebrew date and calendar

       example programs for libhdate, a library that help use Hebrew dates.

       LibHdate  is  a  small  C,C++  library  for  Hebrew  dates, holidays, and reading sequence
       (parasha). It is using the source code  from  Amos  Shapir's  "hdate"  package  fixed  and
       patched by Nadav Har'El. The Torah reading sequence is from tables by Zvi Har'El.


       hdate [-soctShHrRjdi]

       [-L longitude -l latitude] [-z timezone]

       [[[day] month] year]/[julian_day]


       Hdate translates the specified date to the Hebrew calendar.  If no arguments are given, it
       uses today's date.  `month' is a number between 1 and 12.

       If the year is greater than 3000 hdate  takes  the  given  date  as  a  Hebrew  date,  and
       translates  it back to the common calendar. If argument is greater than 100000 hdate takes
       it as the Julian day number.  Months are numbered with Tishrey being 1 and Elul 12; Adar I
       and Adar II are months 13 and 14.
