31.9.2 Converting To Other Calendars

The following commands describe the selected date (the date at point) in various other calendar systems:

mouse-3 Other calendars``p o

Display the selected date in various other calendars. ( calendar-print-other-dates).

p c

Display ISO commercial calendar equivalent for selected day ( calendar-iso-print-date).

p j

Display Julian date for selected day ( calendar-julian-print-date).

p a

Display astronomical (Julian) day number for selected day ( calendar-astro-print-day-number).

p h

Display Hebrew date for selected day ( calendar-hebrew-print-date).

p i

Display Islamic date for selected day ( calendar-islamic-print-date).

p f

Display French Revolutionary date for selected day ( calendar-french-print-date).

p b

Display Bahá’í date for selected day ( calendar-bahai-print-date).

p C

Display Chinese date for selected day ( calendar-chinese-print-date).

p k

Display Coptic date for selected day ( calendar-coptic-print-date).

p e

Display Ethiopic date for selected day ( calendar-ethiopic-print-date).

p p

Display Persian date for selected day ( calendar-persian-print-date).

p m

Display Mayan date for selected day ( calendar-mayan-print-date).

Otherwise, move point to the date you want to convert, then type the appropriate command starting with p from the table above. The prefix p is a mnemonic for “print”, since Emacs “prints” the equivalent date in the echo area. p o displays the date in all forms known to Emacs. You can also use mouse-3 and then choose Other calendars from the menu that appears. This displays the equivalent forms of the date in all the calendars Emacs understands, in the form of a menu. (Choosing an alternative from this menu doesn’t actually do anything—the menu is used only for display.)
