==== Description: ====
Jalali Calendar or Persian Calendar, library and a Unix-cal like interface to
Jalali-Calendar library. Useful to bring Jalali support to GNU platforms,
hence it set itself up as a shared library, other programs can be dynamically
linked to it or open it as a shared library and use it's functions to import
Jalali Calendar support to their interface.
It's written in C (no _cplus_plus code has used), and it's currently on
version 0.1.0(unstable) which can be download from my personal Website on the
net. ( or from project's
mirror: (preferred
download link.)

Due to the fact that Jalali Calendar is much more precise than Gregorian
(Documented here: engine
requires lot more work to be completed since the algorithm used in here is
independent of Gregorian (which makes Jalali one to get wrong answers when
converting a Gregorian time to Jalali or vice-versa) it's still unstable but
good enough. (tried to check it with equivalent non-FreeSoftware program and
it works for at least 1M years! but still not enough.)

Actually, I'm trying to release a FreeSoftware program along with a Free (as
in freedom) algorithm which does not exist at the moment.

Code seem to work good at the moment, it has a configure script, Man page,
etc. but requires a lot of optimization and work.
