Calendar mode was originally written by EdwardReingold.

Here are hints and tips to get started.

To start and display your calendar, just do the following :

‘M-x calendar’

This will open a new buffer with your calendar standard view shown.

CalendarLocalization can tell CalendarMode to speak in your prefered language.

CalendarMode supports CalendarPrinting to dead trees by using LaTeX.
