cal

display a calendar for a month or year 

Command


SYNOPSIS

cal [month] [year]


DESCRIPTION

The cal command writes a human-readable calendar on the standard output.

With no arguments, cal displays a calendar for the current month of the current year. If one argument is given and it is numeric, cal interprets it as a year (for example, 1991); if a single argument is not numeric, cal interprets it as the name of a month, possibly abbreviated (for example, apr). When two arguments are given, cal assumes that the first argument is the month (either a number from 1 to 12 or a month name) and the second is the year.
