   Pcal is a multi-platform program which generates annotated PostScript or
   HTML calendars in a monthly or yearly format.

   It is usually run from the command line but there is an HTML/CGI capability
   as well, to generate calendars from a web-browser interface.

   Various events can be defined in an external text file to control the
   appearance of the calendars generated by 'pcal'.  On monthly PostScript
   calendars, one or more EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) images (photos, icons,
   etc) can be displayed on any given day of the month.

   For much more detail on the available options and use of 'pcal', use any of
   the following sources:

      - View the manual page for 'pcal' by running 'man pcal' after

      - View any one of the supplied help files:

           'pcal-help.ps' -- PostScript (nicest to view)
           'pcal-help.html' -- HTML
           'pcal-help.txt' -- ASCII text

        These files contain the same content as the manual page ('man pcal')
        but in different formats.  They were generated prior to the release of
        'pcal' with these commands (on Unix-like systems):

           groff -man -Tps pcal.man >pcal-help.ps
           groff -man -Thtml pcal.man >pcal-help.html
           groff -man -Tascii pcal.man >pcal-help.txt

        A simpler way to generate those files is to run 'make man', which
        should already have been done just prior to the release of a new
        version of 'pcal'.

      - Run the command 'pcal -h' to get a detailed list of help and
        command-line options.  This output is not always as thorough as the
        help sources mentioned above, but since it is generated directly from
        the program's internal variables, it will always show the most
        up-to-date information, in the rare case that the documentation
        mentioned above wasn't updated to match the program changes.

      - Here's a quick, current, alphabetical list of all the 'pcal' options
        and their associated meanings:
