Gcal is a program for calculating and printing calendars. Gcal
displays hybrid and proleptic Julian and Gregorian calendar sheets,
respectively for one month, three months, or a whole year. It also
displays eternal holiday lists for many countries around the globe,
and features a very powerful creation of fixed date liststhat can be
used for reminding purposes. Gcal can calculate various astronomical
data and times of the Sun and the Moon for pleasure at any location,
precisely enough for most civil purposes. Gcal supports some other
calendar systems, for example, the Chinese and Japanese calendars, the
Hebrew calendar, and the civil Islamic calendar, too.
