French Republican Calendar

Here are known applications which support the French Republican calendar:

Perl DateTime::Calendar::FrenchRevolutionary

On Gentoo, install the perl dependencies:

emerge --ask dev-perl/Params-Validate
emerge --ask dev-perl/DateTime

Or install the perl modules manually:

# cpan
cpan[4]> install "Params::Validate"

# cpan  /frenchrevolutionary/

Then you can print the current date:

perl -MDateTime::Calendar::FrenchRevolutionary -le 'print DateTime::Calendar::FrenchRevolutionary->now->strftime("%c")'
