[CLOSED]cannot find 'calendar' command

I am looking to run the 'calendar' command. I found a man page for it at:

https://www.computerhope.com/unix/ucalande.htm

but when I run:

apt-get install calendar

I get:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package calendar

I have searched the internet and found many references to "cal", but not for "calendar". I find nothing about installing the command or where the source code is located.

Can anyone point me to a repository that contains 'calendar'?

Has it been deprecated from Linux? Even if it has, I would image the source code would still exist in older Linux releases.

Re: [CLOSED]cannot find 'calendar' command

This ?
https://packages.debian.org/bullseye/amd64/calendar

Nope, probably this [bsdmainutils]
https://packages.debian.org/buster/amd6 … s/filelist

Re: [CLOSED]cannot find 'calendar' command

Package bsdmainutils, gives command /usr/bin/calendar as will package calendar also. But package calendar is only available in sid and bullseye.

Re: [CLOSED]cannot find 'calendar' command

My apologies. I was obviously doing something wrong yesterday. /usr/bin/calendar is there and working.
