AC.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.
