       pscal - generates postscript showing your calendar for given year and month


       pscal  [ -Pprinter ] [ -R ] [ -r ] [ -t ] [ -d directory ] [ other printer flags ] [ month
       [ year ] ]


       Pscal generates the Postscript showing a calendar for the specified month and  year.   The
       year,  if  omitted, defaults to the current year.  If both month and year are omitted, the
       current month is printed.  Year can be between 1753 and  9999.   The  month  is  a  number
       between 1 and 12.  I can also be a three letter month abbreviation.

       The  calendar  can be loaded with information from the user.  The information either comes
       in an `Event' file or can be derived from files under the user's Calendar directory should
       this exist.  The search for this data is as follows, if any of these succeeds the data for
       the calendar is taken from that source.

       1)     The shell variable EFILE may be set to the name of an Event file.

       2)     An event file called `Event' may exist in the current directory.

       3)     The file $HOME/.holiday may exist and contain a list of events.

       4)     The directory $HOME/Calendar  (or a  different  directory  specified  with  the  -d
              option) may exist containing XCal files.

       An event file should consist of lines of the form

              month:day:message string

       Messages should be 20 characters or less, with no more than 6 messages per day.  No spaces
       should appear from the beginning of a line until after the second colon.   Month  and  day
       should be numbers in the obvious ranges.


       -Pprinter The printer may be specified with the usual -Pprinter syntax.

       -r        The calendar page is printed in ``landscape'' orientation (the default).

       -R        The calendar page is printed in ``portrait'' orientation; this yields a slightly
                 smaller image and may be more suitable for embedding into other documents.

       -d directory
                 Use the given directory instead of $HOME/Calendar.

       -t        Causes the PostScript to be sent to the standard  output,  rather  than  to  the
                 printer.   This  is  useful  if you wish to save the output in a file, or if you
                 want to use options with the lpr(1) command.

       -F font   Sets the font family for the title text (the month and year).

       -f font   Sets the font family for the day-of-month numbers.

       Other arguments starting with `-' are passed through to lpr(1).

       Any argument whose first character is '-' is  passed  on  to  lpr.   The  shell  variables
       BANNER, LFOOT, CFOOT, and RFOOT become a top centered banner, and left, centered, or right
       justified footers respectively.  As in:

              BANNER="Schedule 1" CFOOT=Preliminary pscal 4 90

       `Pscal' doesn't work for months before 1753 (weird stuff happened in September, 1752).

       A  better  format  for  the  dates  of holidays would be nice.  An escape to allow holiday
       messages to be raw PostScript would also be nice.

       The holiday messages should be handled more intelligently  (ie,  the  messages  should  be
       clipped to the day).
