A little example code to show the array structure:

<?php
$aCalendars
= array( CAL_GREGORIAN, CAL_JULIAN, CALL_JEWISH, CAL_FRENCH );

foreach (
$aCalendars as $cal ) {

    
$aCalInfo = cal_info( $cal );

     echo
"cal_info( " . $aCalInfo['calsymbol'] . " ) = ";
    
print_r( $aCalInfo );
     echo
"\n\n";
}
?>

will return this:
