Description: This is a basic program for converting a specification of a weekly schedule (e.g., a class schedule) into a neat PostScript chart. Documenation is given as POD at the end of the file.
#!/usr/bin/perl -w
# To do:
# - Improve the color palette
# - Add support for weekend events
# - Fix "squeezing" of overly long text so that the last line doesn't 
+touch the
#   bottom of the box
# - Add support for 12-hour times?
# - Rewrite `drawClass' so that it takes the font size as an argument 
+and sets
#   it & the line height, thereby simplifying "squeezing" a bit
# - Handle textless entries
# - Allow literal hash marks to appear in text lines

=head1 NAME

B<schedule> - format class schedules


B<schedule> [B<-glt>] [B<-f> I<size>] [B<-s> I<factor>] [I<infile> [I<


B<Schedule> is a L<perl(1)> script for creating charts in PostScript s
one's weekly schedule, usually for classes or the like.  Currently, on
+ly events
that take place on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and/or Friday
+ are

I<infile> (or stdin if no file is given) is a file formatted as descri
+bed under
L</"INPUT FILES"> below, and I<outfile> is where the resulting PostScr
output will be written.  If I<outfile> is not given, its name will be 
from that of I<infile> by replacing the C<.txt> extension with C<.ps> 
+or, if
there is no such extension, appending C<.ps>; however, if input is bei
+ng read
from stdin, then output will be written to stdout instead.

=head1 OPTIONS


=item B<-f> I<size>

Set the size of the font used for class information to I<size> (defaul
+t 10).
The names of the days of the week are typeset at I<size> * 1.2; the ti
+mes of
day (if printed) are at I<size> / 1.2.

=item B<-g>

Color the class boxes grey rather than various colors.

=item B<-l>

Orient the table in "landscape mode," i.e., with the longer side of th
+e paper
as the width.  The default is to typeset it in "portrait mode."

=item B<-s> I<factor>

Divide the length of each side of the table by I<factor>.  Without thi
+s option,
the table fills the whole page, except for a 1 in. margin on each side

=item B<-t>

Give the time that each hour line represents in the left margin of the
+ page.



Each entry in the input file consists of three or more lines of text a
+nd is
terminated by one or more blank lines.  Any text from a C<#> to the en
+d of a
line is ignored.  The first line in each entry consists of a set of le
which indicate on which days the class is held:

    M - Monday
    T - Tuesday
    W - Wednesday
    R or H - Thursday
    F - Friday

These letters may be in any order & case.  Any characters outside this
+ set are

The second line of each entry specifies the time of day at which the c
+lass is
held.  Times are specified in 24-hour format, the minutes being option
+al (and
optionally preceded by a colon or period), and the beginning & ending 
+times are
separated by a hyphen.  This is the only part of the entry for which t
+he format
matters; if the line is not formed correctly, B<Schedule> prints an er
message and moves on to the next entry.

The remaining lines of the entry consist of user-defined text which wi
+ll be
printed in the class's box on the schedule table.  Long lines will be 
+broken at
whitespace, and if a box contains more lines than can fit, they will b
+e scaled
down until they do.
