       must be fully specified: cal 89 will not display a calendar for 1989.

       Two parameters denote the month (1 - 12) and year.

       Three  parameters  denote  the  day (1-31), month and year, and the day
       will be highlighted if the calendar is displayed on a terminal.	If  no
       parameters are specified, the current month's calendar is displayed.

       A  year starts on Jan 1. The first day of the week is determined by the

       The Gregorian Reformation is assumed to have occurred in	 1752  on  the
       3rd  of September. By this time, most countries had recognized the ref‐
       ormation (although a few did not recognize it until the early  1900's).

       calendar for that month is a bit unusual.
