# TeX/day

< TeX

## Synopsis

```\day=<integer>
\day<integer>
```

## Description

\day is a parameter that TeX initiates to the day of the month. It may be changed to any integer <integer> with either of two equivalent forms above.

## Examples

Recall that the command \number will typeset the decimal representation of whatever follows it, and so if todays date is the 30th then

```\number\day
```

will typeset 30, if the \day parameter has not be redefined.

```\day=-45
\number\day
```

will typeset -45.
