080913 libhdate-1.4.12 [VL 5.9]
« on: September 13, 2008, 03:26:46 pm »

I've packaged an updated version of libhdate for VL 5.9.  In addition to the library this package includes hcal, a CLI Hebrew/Jewish calendar app, and hdate, a command line tool to display the current date on the Jewish calendar.  This is release fixes a bug in the Pascal bindings that was present in version 1.4.11.

libhdate: and reading sequence (parasha). It uses source code from Amos Shapir's

libhdate: sequence is from tables by Zvi Har'El.  Two command line utilities are
libhdate: included: hdate displays today's Hebrew date and hcal displays a
libhdate: Hebrew/Jewish calendar.
