NAME
       RomanDate - Print the Roman date	corresponding to a given Christian
       date.

SYNOPSIS
	 RomanDate [--args arg=value --args arg=value ...] [day	month year]

   OPTIONS
       There is	only one option, namely	"args".	This option can	appears
       multiple	times, each time followed by a string in the form "arg=value".
       arg, value pairs	are those of the "as_string" method of the Date::Roman
       class.

   ARGUMENTS
       "RomanDate" can be invoked either with exactly three arguments or with
       none at all. In the first case, the argument must be numerical and are
       interpreted as the day, month and year number respectively. In the
       second case, the	script prints the current date.

DESCRIPTION
       This script is a	utilization sample of Date::Roman. Given a Christian
       date, it	prints on standard out the corresponding date in the Roman
       format (see the Date::Roman man page for	more details about the Roman
       calendar).

       prints a.d. XIV Kal. Aug. MMDCCXIV AUC.

	 RomanDate --args words=complete --args	auc=abbrev 19 7	1961

       prints ante diem	XIV Kalendas Augustas MMDCCXIV AUC

	 RomanDate

       prints the current date in the Roman form.
