;;; Commentary:
;; This collection of functions implements the features of calendar.el,
;; diary.el, and holidays.el that deal with the Chinese calendar. The rules
;; used for the Chinese calendar are those of Baolin Liu (see L. E. Doggett's
;; article "Calendars" in the Explanatory Supplement to the Astronomical
;; Almanac, second edition, 1992) for the calendar as revised at the beginning
;; of the Qing dynasty in 1644. The nature of the astronomical calculations
;; is such that precise calculations cannot be made without great expense in
;; time, so that the calendars produced may not agree perfectly with published
;; tables--but no two pairs of published tables agree perfectly either! Liu's
;; rules produce a calendar for 2033 which is not accepted by all authorities.
;; The date of Chinese New Year is correct from 1644-2051.
;; Technical details of all the calendrical calculations can be found in
;; ``Calendrical Calculations: The Millennium Edition'' by Edward M. Reingold
;; and Nachum Dershowitz, Cambridge University Press (2001).
;; See calendar.el.
