The **calendar** command shows you what day it is on Discworld, and can also show you when a particular Discworld date is. Used with no arguments, it shows you the dates that will appear over the next seven real-world days.

## Using the command

There are several available syntaxes:

calendar calendar [the] <day> [of] <month> {Prime|prime|Secundus|secundus|1|2} <year> calendar <month> {Prime|prime|Secundus|secundus|1|2} [the] <day> <year> calendar [the] <day> [of] <month> {Prime|prime|Secundus|secundus|1|2} calendar <month> {Prime|prime|Secundus|secundus|1|2} [the] <day> calendar <start> <finish> calendar <special day> <year> calendar <days> calendar today calendar <special day>

The first option shows the Discworld dates that will appear over the next seven real-world days, and when.

The next four options show when a specified Discworld date will begin and end.

The sixth option shows the Discworld dates that will appear over the next *n* days, where *n* is a number you specify:

> calendar 2 Wed Aug 5 2009: Monday 21st Grune Prime, UC 2026. [06:00] Tuesday 22nd Grune Prime, UC 2026. [13:12] Wednesday 23rd Grune Prime, UC 2026. [20:24] Thursday 24th Grune Prime, UC 2026. Thu Aug 6 2009: [03:36] Friday 25th Grune Prime, UC 2026. [10:48] Saturday 26th Grune Prime, UC 2026. [18:00] Sunday 27th Grune Prime, UC 2026.

The seventh and tenth options show when a specified special day will begin and end.

The eighth option shows the Discworld dates that will appear between a certain number of days from now, <start>, and a certain number of days from now, <finish>:

> calendar 2 3 Fri Aug 7 2009: Sunday 27th Grune Prime, UC 2026. [01:12] Octeday 28th Grune Prime, UC 2026. [08:24] Monday 29th Grune Prime, UC 2026. [15:36] Tuesday 30th Grune Prime, UC 2026. [22:48] Wednesday 31st Grune Prime, UC 2026. Sat Aug 8 2009: [06:00] Thursday 1st August Prime, UC 2026. [13:12] Friday 2nd August Prime, UC 2026. [20:24] Saturday 3rd August Prime, UC 2026.
