CLI Calendar for Windows - Unix Style

#1 Post by juverax » Sun Sep 27, 2020 3:15 pm

There must be somewhere on the TPFC website a Windows version of the Unix command-line CAL.
But I could not find it, so I had to go online.
I found a script at: https://www.experts-exchange.com/viewCo ... 30-10613-1
( Description and usage: https://www.experts-exchange.com/articl ... rompt.html )

It works perfectly, and does exactly what I need.

The author is Ralph L. Brown, apparently not related to Ralph D. Brown, author of the "Interrupt List".

Note that the so-called calendar applications in the TPFC database are actually planners, and some are bloatware.

👍
Putting aside Cygwin and MSYS2, there is also ycal, gcal of Gnuwin, cal of busybox-w32.

Still building the database. :)

Of historical interest, DOS-era utility:

http://reimagery.com/fsfd/bin/dye/cal.zip

Code: Select all

CAL (3) - Displays calendar to standard output.

c:\>cal -?

CAL  1.07  Freeware
Copyright 1998, Charles Dye

CAL
CAL mm/yyyy
CAL yyyy
This tiny (900 bytes) command line calendar can display current month, specific M/Y or yearly calendar to standard output.
Gregorian (New Style) is supported; years 1753 through 2399. ASM source included.

Author: Charles Dye / Freeware, FreeDOS and 4DOS-related stuff (1998)

Thanks philippe!

That site looked awfully familiar, but I thought it was much more blue.Turns out, it was!

But definitely thanks for the updated version.

He, he... :wink:

The original "BLUE" site points to a broken CAL(3) URL, hence the detour via a functional backup archive.
