A Daily Calendar Generator

Copyright 1992 Fred Bertagnolli

CALGEN generates ANSI, PCBoard @X code, or text calendars. Today's
date and month are displayed and surrounded by the previous and
following month's calendar. The day number is also shown.

CALGEN was originally designed as a means for BBS Sysops to include
a daily calendar in bulletins or news screens.

You may wish to install CALGEN as part of AUTOEXEC.BAT file to see
today's calendar when you boot up. CALGEN uses the current DOS date
for calculations.


To run the program from a batch file or from the DOS command line...

CALGEN MODE > filename

MODE arguments are: ANSI PCB or TEXT (one is required)
Note: MODE arguments A, P or T are also valid.

> filename redirects output from the screen to a filename.
Any valid path and filename should work.



CALGEN requires ANSI.SYS for viewing in ANSI mode. An ESC code
sequence first clears the screen.


PCB Mode

In PCB mode, you will see codes like @X07 unless your ANSI.SYS
DRIVER can display both PCBoard @X codes and ANSI ESC codes.
An @CLS command clears the screen. PCB mode was made specifically
for PCBoard BBS Sysops who wish to include a daily calendar in a
bulletin or news screen. This is typically done in a batch file
at some preprogrammed event time. Consider using CALGEN as a
service to your BBS subscribers.



In TEXT mode, only the calendar character set is displayed.


> FILENAME Redirection

All output is directed to the screen, unless you REDIRECT screen
output to a specific filename by using the "> filename" command.
CALGEN uses the standard DOS command for redirection.



"CALGEN.CFG" is a text file which can contain two USER lines, for
display in the calendar. Each line should be less than 79 chars.
CALGEN.CFG must be in the same directory as CALGEN.EXE, but CALGEN.EXE
can be run from different drives.

use the program, my thanks, and possibly more. Please support the
"Shareware" concept.

This software requires an IBM compatible PC, DOS 3.0 or higher.
ANSI.SYS or Michael J. Mefford's ANSI-I.ZIP ( supports PCB @X
codes and ANSI.SYS ESC codes ) are suggested.
