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:

     [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>:
