       mhc - Message Harmonized Calendaring system


       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


       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.

              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.

              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.

              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.

              Condition of event date by using following keyword.

                 00-31 Day of month.

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

                 Sun Mon ... Sat Day of week.

                 Jan Feb ... Dec Month


                 X-SC-Cond: Tue Fri
                        Every Tuesday and Friday.

                 X-SC-Cond: 31 Aug
                        Every August 31th.

                 X-SC-Cond: 1st 3rd Fri
                        Every 1st and 3rd Friday.

                 X-SC-Cond: Fri
                 X-SC-Day: !19990409
                        Every Friday, but except April 9th 1999.

                 X-SC-Cond: Fri 13
                        Every 13th and Every Friday, not 13th Friday.

              Hint  for alarm of event.  Currently, mhc.el doesn't alaram, but gemcal will pop-up
              alarm window.  It will be useful if you transfer this event to  PalmOS.   In  X-SC-
              Alarm:,  you  can  specify the number (1 to 99) with suffix such as minute, hour or
              day.  For example,

                 X-SC-Alarm: 10 minutes
                        Alarm 10 minutes before event.

                 X-SC-Alarm: 3 hour
                        Alarm 3 hours before event.

                 X-SC-Alarm: 3 day
                        Alarm 3 day before event.

              Subject of event. unstructured?

              Location of event. unstructured?

              Category of event.  Any keyword, space separeated.  Case ignored.  For example,


                 X-SC-Category: todo

                 X-SC-Category: done

                 X-SC-Category: private todo

                 X-SC-Category: work done

              Internal use only.
