Synopsis[edit]

\year=<integer>
\year<integer>

Description[edit]

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

Examples[edit]

Recall that the command \number will typeset the decimal representation of whatever follows it, and so

\number\year

will typeset 2019 (the current year), if the \year parameter has not be redefined.

\year=670
\number\year

will typeset 670.
