Scrolling in the Calendar
=========================

   The calendar display scrolls automatically through time when you
move out of the visible portion.  You can also scroll it manually.
Imagine that the calendar window contains a long strip of paper with
the months on it.  Scrolling it means moving the strip so that new
months become visible in the window.

`C-x <'
     Scroll calendar one month forward (`scroll-calendar-left').

`C-x >'
     Scroll calendar one month backward (`scroll-calendar-right').

`C-v'
`NEXT'
     Scroll calendar three months forward
     (`scroll-calendar-left-three-months').

`M-v'
`PRIOR'
     Scroll calendar three months backward
     (`scroll-calendar-right-three-months').

`SPC'
     Scroll the next window (`scroll-other-window').

   The most basic calendar scroll commands scroll by one month at a
time.  This means that there are two months of overlap between the
display before the command and the display after.  `C-x <' scrolls the
calendar contents one month to the left; that is, it moves the display
forward in time.  `C-x >' scrolls the contents to the right, which
moves backwards in time.

   The commands `C-v' and `M-v' scroll the calendar by an entire
"screenful"--three months--in analogy with the usual meaning of these
commands.  `C-v' makes later dates visible and `M-v' makes earlier
dates visible.  These commands take a numeric argument as a repeat
count; in particular, since `C-u' (`universal-argument') multiplies the
next command by four, typing `C-u C-v' scrolls the calendar forward by
a year and typing `C-u M-v' scrolls the calendar backward by a year.

   The function keys NEXT and PRIOR are equivalent to `C-v' and `M-v',
just as they are in other modes.

   In Calendar mode, you can use `SPC' (`scroll-other-window') to
scroll the other window.  This is handy when you display a list of
holidays or diary entries in another window.
