NAME
       dxcalendar - DECwindows calendar program

SYNOPSIS
       dxcalendar [ flags ]

DESCRIPTION
       The  dxcalendar	command	 starts	 an  online  interactive  calendar and
       appointment book.  The calendar stores and organizes information	 about
       events,	reminds	 you  when the scheduled events are due to take place,
       and can automatically schedule events that repeat on a regular basis.

       When it first starts, dxcalendar creates a binary database file named

       The dxcalendar command displays calendar information by providing indi‐
       vidual  windows for a year, month, or day.  By default, dxcalendar dis‐
       plays a window containing a month display with the current day enclosed
       in a box.

       To  select a month or day, click on the appropriate name or number.  To
       move backwards and forwards within one display  type,  use  the	scroll
       bars  provided.	 To  change  from one display type to another, double-
       click on the appropriate item.  For example, to show  a	year  display,
       double-click on the year.  To get context-sensitive help on a name or a
       menu item, place the cursor on the item and press the Help key and  MB1
       simultaneously.

       For more information, click on the Help menu, or use the Help key.
