mhc - Message Harmonized Calendaring system
This manual page documents briefly the mhc file format. This manual
page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the
original program does not have a manual page.
Mhc file format is based on STD11/RFC822: Standard for the format of
ARPA Internet text messages. In mhc file, the following extra header
fields are used.
Date of event in format yyyymmdd. You can specify multiple date
with space separated like:
X-SC-Day: 19990409 19990413
which means April 9th 1999 and April 13th 1999.
Time of event in format hh:mm-hh:mm or hh:mm. For event which
has no meanings about time, you can leave it empty in this
Period of event in yyyymmdd-yyyymmdd. You can omit start date
or end date, like "19991121-". X-SC-Duration: is used only to
limit date specified by X-SC-Day: or X-SC-Cond, so you can’t
describe event date only by X-SC-Duration:. If X-SC-Duration:
is empty, it means no limit.
Condition of event date by using following keyword.
00-31 Day of month.
1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th Last Week in month.
Sun Mon ... Sat Day of week.
Jan Feb ... Dec Month
X-SC-Cond: Tue Fri
Every Tuesday and Friday.
X-SC-Cond: 31 Aug
Every August 31th.
X-SC-Cond: 1st 3rd Fri
Every 1st and 3rd Friday.
Every Friday, but except April 9th 1999.
X-SC-Cond: Fri 13
Every 13th and Every Friday, not 13th Friday.
Hint for alarm of event. Currently, mhc.el doesn’t alaram, but
gemcal will pop-up alarm window. It will be useful if you
transfer this event to PalmOS. In X-SC-Alarm:, you can specify
the number (1 to 99) with suffix such as minute, hour or day.
X-SC-Alarm: 10 minutes
Alarm 10 minutes before event.
X-SC-Alarm: 3 hour
Alarm 3 hours before event.
X-SC-Alarm: 3 day
Alarm 3 day before event.
