39.9.2 Converting To Other Calendars

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

Mouse-2 Other calendars

Display the date that you click on, expressed in various other calendars.

p c

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

p j

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

p a

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

p h

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

p i

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

p f

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

p C

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

p k

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

p e

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

p p

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

p m

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

If you are using X, the easiest way to translate a date into other calendars is to click on it with Mouse-2, 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.)

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.
