Small code change which al­lows the pack­age to be used (with some cre­ative re­def­i­ni­tions) with plain TeX. Also im­proved the doc­u­men­ta­tion to re­flect de­pen­den­cies. No change in func­tion­al­ity.

tex­date – Date print­ing, for­mat­ting, and ma­nip­u­la­tion in

and pro­vide few fa­cil­i­ties for dates by de­fault, though many pack­ages have filled this gap. This pack­age fills it, as well, with a pure -prim­i­tive im­ple­men­ta­tion. It can print dates, ad­vance them by num­bers of days, weeks, or months, de­ter­mine the week­day au­to­mat­i­cally (with an al­go­rithm cribbed from the day­ofweek.tex file writ­ten by Martin Mi­now), and print them in (mostly) ar­bi­trary for­mat. It can also print cal­en­dars (monthly and yearly) au­to­mat­i­cally, and can be eas­ily lo­cal­ized for non-English lan­guages.
