No, I do have cal, but calendar is a separate command, that reads a calendar file in the user's home directory and spits out any dates it finds in the file as events of the day. So if I had calendar file that had a line like:

Meeting on 1/28/2007 at Joe's house,

when invoked, the calendar command would spit the line back out on 1/27 and 1/28, as calendar events for "tomorrow" (when invoked on 1/27) and "today" (when invoked on 1/28).

This may not be a good solution but your calandar fuction is part of the
evolution mail program as it is part of Outlook under Windows.

There's even a tie-in to the Gnome menu-bar date display so that alarm popups happen even if evolution isn't open. I'm not sure how reliable it is now. I used it for a while with the exchange connector, but quit some time ago when the connector broke in an update. Evolution has its own calendar but I needed access to the group calendar on an exchange server and set something else up.
