Dear All,

Even though I am a TeX/LaTeX user of almost 20 years this is my first 
message to this mailing list.

I am curious what is recommended way for creating various Calendars.
Namely, I have been using for a while a simple template found at


for creating monthly calendar with the lessons plan for courses that I
teach. Couple nights ago I tried to dig dipper into the subject and to
my big surprise I found only two credible references to for packages
related to calendars.

One is http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/calendar/

What I am really looking for is a templet in the style of AMS cover
sheet i.e. a TeX file which will interactively ask me a few questions
(like a range of the Calendar) and then create a file a calendar.dvi and
a file calendar.dat which might be then further edited by hand.

Also it seems to me that in term of graphics even by a very simple use
of colortbl package I could create quite fancy Monthly calendar.

Most Kind Regards, 
Predrag Punosevac

P.S. I should mention that I am using TeXLive 2009 on OpenBSD. I should
also mention that I use 85% of time LaTeX and the rest of the time plan
TeX as well as that I have strong preference for PSTricks over other
graphics tools.
