NAME

mhc - Message Harmonized Calendaring system

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the mhc file format. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

FIELDS

Mhc file format is based on STD11/RFC822: Standard for the format of ARPA Internet text messages. In mhc file, the following extra header fields are used.
X-SC-Day:
Date of event in format yyyymmdd. You can specify multiple date with space separated like:
 
X-SC-Day: 19990409 19990413
which means April 9th 1999 and April 13th 1999.
X-SC-Time:
Time of event in format hh:mm-hh:mm or hh:mm. For event which has no meanings about time, you can leave it empty in this field.
X-SC-Duration:
Period of event in yyyymmdd-yyyymmdd. You can omit start date or end date, like "19991121-". X-SC-Duration: is used only to limit date specified by X-SC-Day: or X-SC-Cond, so you can't describe event date only by X-SC-Duration:. If X-SC-Duration: is empty, it means no limit.
 
X-SC-Cond:
Condition of event date by using following keyword.
00-31 Day of month.
