command-line calendar program that can keep track of events
pal is a command-line calendar program for Unix/Linux systems that can keep
track of events. It has similarities with the Unix cal command, the more
complex GNU gcal program, and the calendar program distributed with the BSDs.
.
Some of pal's main features are:
* A cal-like calendar that highlights days that have events.
* Assign different colors to different types of events.
* Search events with regular expressions (-s).
* Includes calendars for US holidays, Christian holidays, world holidays,
historical events and more.
* One-time events and a variety of recurring events are supported (daily,
weekly, monthly, yearly). Recurring events can have start and end dates.
* Easy-to-use interface for interactively adding, editing and deleting
events (-m).
* Automated deletion of old events (-x).
* Option to generate an HTML calendar (--html).
* Option to generate a LaTeX calendar suitable for printing (--latex).
.
Ways to use pal effectively include:
* Create your own calendar files and be reminded of upcoming meetings,
deadlines, and events.
* Remind yourself daily of your "To Do" list by using the special TODO event
type.
* Run pal in your shell initialization file (such as ~/.bash_profile) to see
your calendar whenever you open a new terminal.
* Set up a cron job that emails you and/or others the output of pal every
morning (--mail).
* View the calendars of other pal users on the same system.
