Calendar Mode and the Diary
Emacs provides the functions of a desk calendar, with a diary of past
or planned events. Display the calendar by typing `M-x calendar'.
This command creates a window containing a three-month calendar centered
on the current month, with point on the current date. Or, provide a
prefix argument by typing `C-u M-x calendar'; then you are prompted for
the month and year to be the center of the three-month calendar. In
either case, you are now in Calendar mode.
Calendar mode makes it easy to look at the holidays or diary entries
associated with various dates, and to change the diary entries. You
can move freely between the Calendar window and other windows. To exit
the calendar, type `q'.
