CAL(1)                     OpenBSD Reference Manual                     CAL(1)

     cal - displays a calendar

     cal [-jy] [[month] year]

     cal displays a simple calendar.  If arguments are not specified, the cur-
     rent month is displayed.  The options are as follows:

     -j      Display julian dates (days one-based, numbered from January 1).

     -y      Display a calendar for the current year.

     A single parameter specifies the year (1 - 9999) to be displayed; note
     the year must be fully specified: ``cal 89'' will not display a calendar
     for 1989.  Two parameters denote the month (1 - 12) and year.  If no pa-
     rameters are specified, the current month's calendar is displayed.

     A year starts on Jan 1.

     The Gregorian Reformation is assumed to have occurred in 1752 after the
     2nd of September.  By this time, most countries had recognized the refor-
     mation (although a few did not recognize it until the early 1900's.)
     Eleven days following that date were eliminated by the reformation, so
     the calendar for that month is a bit unusual.

     The cal command offers a superset of IEEE Std1003.2 (``POSIX.2'') func-

     A cal command appeared in Version 6 AT&T UNIX.
