Fun with cal and GeekTool
"Some hints ago, it was shown the use of the cal shell command to generate a calendar of the current month. Another more recent hint (in the comments) talked about this utility in conjunction with GeekTool to have a desktop calendar, a simple solution that I enjoyed a lot. But something wasn't perfect for me, so I did a little study on the subject to solve some problems and enhance the display of cal. I know that I could have used other programs or AppleScript and lived happily, but I wanted to use only shell scripting (so geeky ... but fun). Read the rest of the hint for my efforts.
