ALMANAC is a calendar/scheduler/information utility for Microsoft Windows. It provides traditional calendar displays in month and year format, as well as a popup desk set for day-to-day notes and schedules. Configuration files and overlays allow you to customize calendars for your business and personal needs. An overlay is a set of data which provides ALMANAC with the information it needs to calculate the days events will occur on. The types of events ALMANAC will calculate include weekly, monthly, and annual events by day or date, as well as birthday, wedding anniversaries, and others. Up to ten overlays may be specified in a configuration file, and included are three sample files which define holidays for the United States, Canada, and Sweden. In addition to specifying overlay files, ALMANAC auto-load modules allow you to configure options for calculating religious holidays (Christian and/or Jewish), phases of the moon, and calendar mode (Gregorian/Jewish). A built in database is used to determine your location so you can calculate the time and azimuth of the sunrise and sunset.
