calendar

Calendar for specified month

Syntax

c = calendar
c = calendar(d)
c = calendar(y, m)

Description

c = calendar returns a 6-by-7 matrix containing a calendar for the current month. The calendar runs Sunday (first column) to Saturday.

c = calendar(d), where d is a serial date number or text representing a date and time, returns a calendar for the specified month.

c = calendar(y, m), where y and m are integers, returns a calendar for the specified month of the specified year.

If you do not specify an output argument, then calendar displays a calendar in the Command Window but does not return a value.

Examples

The command

calendar(1957,10)

reveals that the Space Age began on a Friday (on October 4, 1957, when Sputnik 1 was launched).

                    Oct 1957
     S     M    Tu     W    Th     F     S
     0     0     1     2     3     4     5
     6     7     8     9    10    11    12
    13    14    15    16    17    18    19
    20    21    22    23    24    25    26
    27    28    29    30    31     0     0
     0     0     0     0     0     0     0

Limitations

  • MATLAB Online determines the current month from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) rather than from local time.
