  • cal calendar command for terminal

    You can use the cal command to display a calendar in Julian or Gregorian format. The format depends on your locale settings but can be toggled with parameters.

    As the screen below shows the default calendar is the current month. You can use the parameter -A 2 to display the next two months or 2018 to display all months in that year:
