Appendix K Coding Scheme

The following coding scheme tables explain the relations between the date part (yyyy...) of a resource file line and the modifiers, the short-style option -c|C[] —which is used for enabling the fixed date feature— respectively the --period-of-fixed-dates=argument long-style option may have, i.e. they point out all possible correspondences. This is necessary because Gcal does not respect all entries found in a resource file if a fixed date argument is given, it respects only those entries which have a definite relation to the fixed date argument to avoid the output of redundant information! See Fixed dates option --period-of-fixed-dates=argument, for further details.

In the date part yyyy...:

yyyy
represents any year number (0001...9999).
mm
represents any month number (01...12 or 99) respectively any textual short month name with length of 3 characters (Jan, Feb...).
dd
represents any day number (01...28, 29, 30, 31 or 99).
www
represents any textual short weekday name with length of 2...3 characters (Mon...Sun).
?
represents any case-insensitive single letter.
n
represents any positive integer number (one or more digits).
