Description

The calendar command lists which Discworld days will occur on which real life days for the coming week.

Note that one Discworld day equals slightly more than 7 hours in "real life".

The output of the calendar command can be confusing if you don't know anything about the Discworld year so here are the very basics:

A Discworld common year has 400 days and 13 months; it covers the usual seasons spring, summer, autumn and winter. Two common years (called Prime and Secundus) form a Discworld astronomical year.

For example, the 21st Grune Secundus UC 2030 is the 21st day of the month Grune in the second common year of the astronomical year 2030.

The Discworld seasons are:

Spring Prime
