Ok thanks

I have found http://www.texample.net/tikz/examples/ to give a few good
examples,  i have pgf installed but do I need to install TikZ as a
separate package, under ubuntu ?

or are they one package.


Hm... usually they are shipped as one package. However, historically  
PGF was first and previous versions of PGF were also shipped with  
latex-beamer (by the same author), so I am not completely sure.


Will have a read of the tutorial and information files.

TikZ comes with an impressive amount of documentation and examples;  
there are several calendar examples in  pgfmanual.pdf.

I'm sure it's possible, probably with a series of tables, one for  
each month.


But I can sure see a lot of easier tools to use for a calender,  
especially if

you know a little bit of scripting language programming.
