pcal and lcal

Pcal prints nice-looking PostScript (or HTML) calendars (in monthly or yearly formats) and has a wide variety of useful options. Its real power is its ability to create personalized calendars by marking 'events' (e.g. holidays, birthdays, paydays, etc.) and by adding EPS images (photos, icons, etc.). Lcal generates full-year, colorized lunar calendars in a one-page or two-page format.
