NAME

       xcalpr - print xcal calendar entries

SYNTAX

       xcalpr [ -c ][ -x ][ -f file ][ -d dir ][ -u user ][ date-spec ]

DESCRIPTION

       Xcalpr  prints  the  contents  of the xcal files.  It is intended to be
       used in situations when you have no access to an X screen.  It can also
       be used to generate entries for the standard UNIX calendar program.

       With  no arguments, it prints any entries that exist for the next seven
       days.  The program also reads the contents of the seven daily files and
       prints  them  at the appropriate point in the output stream.  Each line
       in the output is preceded by the day of the week, the day of the month,
       the month and the year.

       Xcalpr  can  be  given a date specification to select months and years.
       If the date spec consists of just a year number, then all the data  for
       that year is printed.  For example:
            xcalpr 1994
       will print all the data for 1994.  Several years can be specified.

       If  you  give  the name of a month, then the data for that month in the
       current year will be printed.  If the month is in the  past,  then  the
       data for that month next year will be printed.  For example, if
            xcalpr oct jan
       is  typed  in August, xcalpr will print October in the current year and
       January next year.

       You can select a particular year by adding the number after any  months
       that you need printing:
            xcalpr oct nov 1994
       will print October and November in 1994.

       There  are a couple of special `month' names.  The name rest will print
       the data for the rest  of  the  month,  starting  tomorrow.   The  rest
       argument  is  not  recognised  if  you  give a year as a parameter.  If
       tomorrow happens to be the first day of the next month,  then  all  the
       data for next month will be printed.  The name next prints all the data
       for next month.

OPTIONS

       The -c option causes xcalpr to output lines suitable for input  to  the
       standard UNIX calendar program.

       The  -d  switch  is  followed  by  a  directory  name  and specifies an
       alterative location for your Calendar directory.  Your  home  directory
       is prepended if the name doesn't start with a slash or a dot.

       The  -f  option  is  followed by a file name and xcalpr will write it's
       output to that file, rather than standard output.

       The -u option is followed by a user name and dumps their calendar files
       rather than yours.

       The  -x  option  makes  xcalev  operate  with  Calendar  files that are
       compatible with the xcalendar program.
