Scrolling the Calendar through Time
The calendar display scrolls automatically through time when you
move out of the visible portion. You can also scroll it manually.
Imagine that the calendar window contains a long strip of paper with
the months on it. Scrolling it means moving the strip so that new
months become visible in the window.
Scroll calendar one month forward (`scroll-calendar-left').
Scroll calendar one month backward (`scroll-calendar-right').
Scroll calendar three months forward
Scroll calendar three months backward
The most basic calendar scroll commands scroll by one month at a
time. This means that there are two months of overlap between the
display before the command and the display after. `C-x <' scrolls the
calendar contents one month to the left; that is, it moves the display
forward in time. `C-x >' scrolls the contents to the right, which
moves backwards in time.
The commands `C-v' and `M-v' scroll the calendar by an entire
"screenful"--three months--in analogy with the usual meaning of these
commands. `C-v' makes later dates visible and `M-v' makes earlier
dates visible. These commands also take a numeric argument as a repeat
count; in particular, since `C-u' (`universal-argument') multiplies the
next command by four, typing `C-u C-v' scrolls the calendar forward by
a year and typing `C-u M-v' scrolls the calendar backward by a year.
Any of the special Calendar mode commands scrolls the calendar
automatically as necessary to ensure that the date you have moved to is
automatically generated by info2www
