    Yeah, there's bunches. I know that some Thai's use a funky calendar, so I did a search on Google for "calendar thai gregorian," followed a link to Cyndi's List - Calendars & Dates, and finally found Cumberland Family Software's Universal Calendar Converter.

    Three caveats:
    • Windows-only (written in Clarion, FWIW)
    • It's a great example of how NOT to design a user interface
    • They're charging $25 bucks for it, and two other programs

    When I get some gumption (I'm fresh out), I'll write a calendar converter in perl (or whatnot).

    C▓
    Oh, yeah, I was disappointed that they didn't have Aztec, Mayan, or Incan dates. That's why I'll write one, if for no other reason.
