## 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

\number\year


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

\year=670
\number\year
