You can use the calendar reminder service to send yourself mail reminders about upcoming appointments. The calendar program looks for a file called calendar in your home directory and then mails you the lines containing today's or tomorrow's date.
To use calendar, create a file called calendar in your home directory. Put each appointment on a single line containing the date of the appointment in US (month-day) format. For example:
$Then, to guarantee that the calendar program reads your calendar file each time you log in, add the following line to the end of your .profile (C shell users: add this line to your .login):
cat > calendar 7/4 Dave and Peter start work 7/5 UNIX Beta Committee meeting, 10 am 7/7 Meet Vip at the airport <Ctrl>D
/usr/bin/calendarFor more information on customizing your .profile or .login see ``Your environment'' and ``Sample shell startup files''.
