Well, what are these "most calendar programs"?  I know about: ical (not
related to iCal), plan, remind.  None of them reads this format.  I know
of other calendars packaged as web applications that do, but apart from
the fact that I want to avoid the "weight" of such, none of them has a
way to export to text, which is what I'm after.

I.e. with ical:

ical -show +2

I wonder which is the best virus for unix and if I can write
a better one in Microsoft BASIC ?
