Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

You'll have to keep leap years in account, but all in all, you need a loop to do this, I fully concur with colucix. Also, your program must have a) execute rights and b) write permission to the folder in question.
If it is only january, the thing is simple (I'm at a loss to the purpose: a calendar with ONLY january, but, this is not my homework) you need two nested loops.
Hmm, do I smell the faint oudor of ... homework?
I have to concur with corp769 though, please dont let US do YOUR homework. Homework has been wrongly translated from the "ancient texts" where it meant "an opportunity to learn and grow"...

Uh. I think that's a misunderstanding? No need to.
Thanks, you brightened my day I felt I had to apologise for assuming I was helping someone out with his homework while he was simply asking for a helping hand...case of jumping tru the wrong loop of my part, I thought.
NP. Contrary to what some members have come to believe (who might have forgotten they once were new Linux users too) is that LQ is a knowledge base for all things Linux. Anyone asking a question, as long as it does not violate any LQ Rules, deserves a reply or answer that contains more than solely "go google for it", "use distribution version X" or "here's a catb link on how to ask questions".
After all we're Linuxquestions.org: you've got the question, we've got the answer.
well for the answer i did it my way, it was the same i've montioned on the begining i wasn't sure but it still fine # cat | cal 01 2001 > year01.txt ; cat | cal 01 2002 > year02.txt ; ........ 'till: cat | cal 01 2005 > year05.txt [and it wasn't home work ] and for "loop" command i didn't study it yet.
