This library provides access to and handling of calendar data. It supports the standard formats iCalendar and vCalendar and the group scheduling standard iTIP.
A calendar contains information like incidences (events, to-dos, journals), alarms, time zones, and other useful information. This API provides access to that calendar information via well known calendar formats iCalendar (or iCal) and the older vCalendar.
Credit goes to Eric Bossum <eric@.email@example.com@firstname.lastname@example.org@m.o.org> for his libical software that does most of the heavy-lifting of the iCalendar support that is abstracted by this API.
