Commands to Add to the Diary
While in the calendar, there are several commands to create diary
Add a diary entry for the selected date (`insert-diary-entry').
Add a diary entry for the selected day of the week
Add a diary entry for the selected day of the month
Add a diary entry for the selected day of the year
You can make a diary entry for a specific date by selecting that date
in the calendar window and typing the `i d' command. This command
displays the end of your diary file in another window and inserts the
date; you can then type the rest of the diary entry.
If you want to make a diary entry that applies to a specific day of
the week, select that day of the week (any occurrence will do) and type
`i w'. This inserts the day-of-week as a generic date; you can then
type the rest of the diary entry.
You can make a monthly diary entry in the same fashion. Select the
day of the month, use the `i m' command, and type rest of the entry.
Similarly, you can insert a yearly diary entry with the `i y' command.
All of the above commands make marking diary entries. If you want
the diary entry to be nonmarking, give a prefix argument to the command.
For example, `C-u i w' makes a nonmarking, weekly diary entry.
When you modify the diary file, be sure to save the file before
