# TeX/year

## SynopsisEdit

```\year=<integer>
\year<integer>
```

## DescriptionEdit

\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.

## ExamplesEdit

Recall that the command \number will typeset the decimal representation of whatever follows it, and so in the year 2009

```\number\year
```

will typeset 2009, if the \year parameter has not be redefined.

```\year=670
\number\year
```

will typeset 670.
