    This package implements many calendars.

    In addition to the Gregorian calendar, it has

    Armenian calendar
    Bahai calendar
    Chinese calendar
    Coptic calendar
    Egyptian calendar
    Ethiopic calendar
    French revolutionary calendar
    Hebrew calendar
    Hindu lunar calendar
    Hindu solar calendar
    Indian calendar
    Islamic calendar
    Jalali calendar
    Julian calendar
    Mayan calendar
    Nepali calendar
    Persian calendar
    World calendar

    Different countries changed from Julian to Gregorian calendar in
    different times. This package has calendars for the following
    countries (all of them do not exist any more as independend countries)

    Calendar Countries
    BohemianMoravian Bohemia and Moravia
    British Great Britain and Dominions
    Bulgarian Bulgaria
    Danish Denmark, Norway and many German Protestant states
    Finnish Finland and Sweden
    Hungarian Hungary
    Luxemburgian Luxemburg
    Prussian Prussia
    Romanian Romania
    Russian Russia, Estonia (was part of Russia when calendar changed)
    SwissProtestant Swiss Protestant cantons


    The classes do not implement the java.util.Calendar interface but they
    have functions to convert to and from java.util.GregorianCalendar.

    Part of the code is translated into Java from GNU Emacs's calendar
    package.

    Another source has been The Calendar FAQ
    http://www.tondering.dk/claus/calendar.html


    The package also has date formatting and parsing routines analogous to
    java.text.DateFormat and java.text.SimpleDateFormat.

    A World calendar.. what's that?

    --
    If George W. Bush and his "Pax Americana" nutters have their way, the whole
    world will be using the American calendar by the time they're all done
    implementing their foreign policies.
