Creating a calendar

Create a calendar to associate with a time series.

Every time series is associated with a calendar. A calendar defines a set of valid times at which the time series can record data; it determines when and how often entries are accepted. A calendar consists of a start date, a pattern, and an interval. Consider this example: the pattern start date is a Sunday; the pattern is 1 off, 5 on, 1 off; and the interval is a day. For this pattern, the information is not gathered the first day, Sunday. Information is gathered everyday for the next five days, Monday through Friday. Information is not gathered the last day, Saturday.
