     dtcm - The TED Calendar Manager.

     dtcm [-v view ] [-c calendar ] [-p printer]

     dtcm is the TED appointment and resource scheduling tool.
     Use it to:
	  - Display day, week, month, and year views of your
	  - Schedule single or repeating calendar entries
	  - Browse and edit another user's calendar
	  - Schedule reminders to give you notice of events
	  - Restrict access to your calendar
	  - Print high-quality hardcopy
	  - View and Schedule entries for a group of calendars
	  - Change the time zone context
	  - Announce appointments via electronic mail
	  - Schedule appointments received in electronic mail

     dtcm accepts all of the standard X Toolkit command line
     options as well as the following:

     -c calendar
	  Specifies the calendar to display.  The default value
	  is equivalent to $USER@$HOST.

     -p printer
	  Specifies the default printer.  The default is the
	  system's default printer.

     -v view
	  Specifies the initial view.  Values can be "day",
	  "week", "month" or "year".

     A calendar is a persistent entity existing somewhere on the
     network, which contains scheduling data for a user.  A
     calendar entry is an event recorded within the context of a
     calendar.	Calendar entries supported by dtcm are appoint-
     ment and to-do.  Calendar entries can be single, or repeat
     entries.  A calendar entry may have one or more reminders
     associated with it.  A reminder causes dtcm to notify you by
     issuing an alarm when the system time enters your specified
     reminder notice period before the event.  When viewing your
     calendar, you have the notion of the current date, which is
     the date you last selected by selecting the Day View, or by
     clicking in any of the other views.  The current date does

     not change until you select another date, even if you have
     navigated out of a view that would contain the current date.
     dtcm presents a network calendar model. To operate on a
     calendar belonging to some user on the network, dtcm estab-
     lishes a session with a calendar server.  The calendar
     server is (conceptually at least) a separate process running
     on the host where the calendar is located.	 It manages all
     the calendars for the host on which it is running, and can
     service multiple connected applications simultaneously.  The
     calendar server responds to authentication, session control
     and calendar transactions initiated by dtcm.  In addition
     dtcm responds to events occurring at the server, such as
     updates caused by other connected applications instances.

     dtcm has a single main window, containing a graphical calen-
     dar.  You can choose to view day, week, month or year in the
     main window.  Navigating between the views is achieved by
     selecting the view from the View menu, or by clicking one of
     the navigation buttons displayed in the current view.

     Secondary Windows In addition to the main window, dtcm has
     several secondary windows, which give you access to the
     scheduling and browsing features of dtcm.	The Appointment
     Editor allows scheduling of appointments.	An appointment is
     the most common type of calendar entry.  It is useful for
     scheduling time-slots in your calendar, and can be exported
     to other users either by direct entry to their calendars, or
     through electronic mail.  To invoke the appointment editor,
     select it from the Schedule menu in the main window, or
     double-click anywhere in the graphical calendar view.  The
     To Do Editor allows you to maintain a list of to-do items
     for your personal use.  To-do entries are not visible to
     other dtcm users who are browsing your calendar; they are
     private to you.  To-do entries differ from appointments in
     that they do not necessarily appear as scheduled events in
     your calendar views.  If they have a Due Date associated
     with them, you will see that on your calendar view.  The
     main purpose of to-do entries is to allow you to maintain a
     list of work items, without necessarily allocating calendar
     time for them.  Invoke the to-do editor by selecting it from
     the Schedule menu in the main window.  The Group Appointment
     Editor allows you to schedule an appointment on multiple
     calendars at once.	  Invoke the group appointment editor by
     clicking Schedule in the Compare Calendars window.	  You may
     optionally announce the appointment over electronic mail.
     The Compare Calendars window allows you to connect to
     several calendars simultaneously, and get a graphical over-
     view of busy and available time in the resultant "virtual
     calendar".	 Invoke the compare calendars window by selecting
     it from the Browse menu in the main window.  The Options
     window, accessible from the File menu, gives you access to
     the dtcm options that you can configure.  There are several
     categories of options: Editor Defaults; Display Settings;
     Access List and Permissions; Printer Settings; Date Format.
     Set the options to suit your requirements, and save them by
     clicking Apply.

     dtcm supports a number of application resources to allow you
     to configure its behaviour.  The application class name for
     dtcm is Dtcm.  To set application resources, you can copy
     the system default version of this file from /usr/dt/app-
     defaults/<LANG>/Dtcm to a personal version, typically
     ~/app-defaults/Dtcm, and edit it with your changes. Follow-
     ing is the list of supported resources and their default
