calendar ← ##.cal date                      ⍝ Calendar.

[cal] is an emulation of Unix shell command cal(1). Right argument [date] may be
one of:

    yyyy        ⍝ year, eg: 1986
    yyyy mm     ⍝ year and month, eg: 2009 12
    mm          ⍝ relative month, 0 means current month, ¯1 means last month ...

[cal] distinguishes the "yyyy" and "mm" cases on range.  If  the  argument  is a
single  number  in  the  range ¯12 to 12, it is interpreted as a relative month.
Otherwise, it is taken as a year. This means that [cal] cannot return a calendar
for the years ¯0012 to 0012.

Requires: →date← →days←

Examples:

      cal 0                 ⍝ current month
