       hcal - Hebrew date

       example programs for libhdate, a library that help use hebrew dates.

       LibHdate  is  a  small  C,C++  library  for Hebrew dates, holidays, and
       reading sequence (parasha). It is  using  the  source  code  from  Amos
       Shapir’s  "hdate"  package fixed and patched by Nadav Har’El. The Torah
       reading sequence is from tables by Zvi Har’El.


       hcal [-hdi]

       [ [ month ] year ]


       Hcal prints a calendar with  both  common  and  Hebrew  dates  for  the
       specified  month,  or  the  whole year if no month is specified.  If no
       arguments are given, it prints the current month.  Major  holidays  are
       marked by a ‘*’, other holidays by a ‘+’, fast days by a ‘-’.

       If the year is greater than 3000, hcal takes the given date as a Hebrew
       date, and translates it  back  to  the  common  calendar.   Months  are
       numbered  with  Tishrey  being  1  and  Elul 12; Adar I and Adar II are
       months 13 and 14.

       -h : Print output in html format.

       -d : Use diaspora reading and holidays.

       -i : Use external css file "./hcal.css".
