NAME


hcal - displays a Hebrew / Gregorian calendar

SYNOPSIS


hcal [options] [coordinates [timezone]] [[mm] yyyy]

coordinates: -l [NS]yy[.yyy] -L [EW]xx[.xxx]
-l [NS]yy[:mm[:ss]] -L [EW]xx[:mm[:ss]]
timezone: -z nn[( .nn | :mm )]

DESCRIPTION


hcal prints a calendar with both Gregorian and Hebrew dates for the specified Gregorian
month or, if no month is specified, for the whole Gregorian year. If no arguments are
given, it prints the current month's calendar. Jewish holidays are annotated, and can
optionally be footnoted. hcal tries to be sunset-aware in order to correctly highlight
the current Hebrew date, and can also display Shabbat times and parshiot. See the section
LOCATION, below.

INPUTTING A HEBREW DATE: If the year provided is greater than 3000, hcal will interpret
the given date as a Hebrew date, and will display the calendar of the corresponding
Gregorian month(s). Hebrew months are expected to be passed as numbers 1-12 for Tishrei -
Elul; Adar I and Adar II are expected to be passed as months 13 and 14.

NOTES


HOLIDAYS
Holidays are depicted by a change in the symbol separating a day's Gregorian and Hebrew
dates, as follows:

/ Regular day
+ Yom Tov (plus Yom Kippur)
* Erev Yom Kippur
~ Hol HaMoed
! Hanuka and Purim
@ Tzomot
$ Lag BaOmer ,Tu BeAv, Tu BeShvat
# Independance day and Yom Yerushalaim
% Tzahal and Holocaust memorial days
^ Other Israeli National days

Use the -f (--footnote) option to have hcal describe what any particular day is marking.

LOCATIONS
If you want hcal to display accurate Shabbat times, and to accurately advance the Hebrew
'today's date' indicator at sunset, hcal requires location and time zone information in
order to make astronomical calculations for a given date. If you don't provide ANY such
information, hcal uses your computer's local time zone information as an indicator, and
either picks a city in that time zone, or defaults to the equator at the center of that
time zone. If hcal can't even retrieve time zone information from your computer, it
defaults to Tel-Aviv. For other locations, use the -l -L option pair. For other timezones,
use the -z option. Co-ordinates and standard time zones for some common locations are
listed below.

The current defaults include:
Timezone Default city Lattitude Longitude
-5 New York City 40 -74
0 London 51 0
1 Paris 48 2
2 Tel-Aviv 32 34
3 Moscow 55 37
