plan is a schedule planner based on X/Motif. It displays a month calendar similar to xcal, but every day box is large enough to show appointments in small print. By pressing on a day box, the appointments for that day can be listed and edited.

The action being taken when a warn or alarm time is reached is programmable; by default a window pops up. In addition, a program can be executed, or mail can be sent. Other methods of listing appointments (today, this week, next week, or a keyword search for regular expressions) are also available. plan can be configured to display times in 12-hour or 24-hour formats, mmddyy and ddmmyy date formats, and can show either Monday or Sunday in the leftmost column. Three view modes are supported: one month, one year, and one week. The week view plots appointments as colored and labelled bars in a hour vs. day chart, and allows other users' appointments to be included.
