Tcal(1) runs the Gcal program with the date of tomorrow's day.


tcal [--help | --version] | [--shift=[+|-]number] [Argument...]


Tcal is a program which runs gcal with a date set one day ahead (equivalent the --shift=1 option). All given arguments are passed unmodified to the Gcal program. If the Gcal program shall be called with another date than tomorrow's date, this desired date can be selected by using the --shift=[+|-]number option, in which [+|-]number is the distance of days the desired date is distant from the actual date (works only for Gregorian years). The --shift option must be given before all other arguments which are passed to the Gcal program. An exit status of 0 means all processing is successfully done, any other value means an error has occured.


Print a usage message listing all available options, then exit successfully.
Print the version number, then exit successfully.
Define the displacement in [+|-]number days the desired date is distant from the actual date.


The GCALPROG environment variable contains the file name of the executable Gcal program, which is used by Tcal to call Gcal. This takes precedence over the file name `gcal', which is burned-in during the compilation step of tcal.
