The Calendar and the Diary

   Emacs provides the functions of a desk calendar, with a diary of
planned or past events.  To enter the calendar, type `M-x calendar';
this displays a three-month calendar centered on the current month, with
point on the current date.  If you use prefix argument as in `C-u M-x
calendar', it prompts you for the month and year to be the center of
the three-month calendar.  The calendar uses its own buffer and the
major mode is Calendar mode.

   To exit the calendar, type `q'.
