Calendar definition

A calendar is a list of dates which define if and when a job stream runs. Each calendar definition has the following format and arguments:


calendarname [“description”]
     date [...]

[calendarname ...]


Specifies the name of the calendar. The name can contain up to eight alphanumeric characters, including dashes (-) and underscores (_), and must start with a letter.
Provides a description of the calendar. The description can contain up to 120 alphanumeric characters. It must be enclosed in double quotation marks. It can contain alphanumeric characters as long as it starts with a letter. It can contain the following characters: comma (,), period (.), dash (-), plus (+), single quote ('), and equal (=). It cannot contain double quotation marks (") other than the enclosing ones, colon (:), semi-colon (;), and ampersand (&).
date [...]
Specifies one or more dates, separated by spaces. The format is mm/dd/yy.


The following example defines three calendars named monthend, paydays, and holidays:
monthend "Month end dates 1st half 2005"
     01/31/2005 02/28/2005 03/31/2005 04/30/2005 05/31/2005 06/30/2005
