The Hebcal UNIX program was a C reimplementation of the calendar code found in the Emacs text editor. That was written by Prof. Edward Reingold, who wrote a book on calendar algorithms with Nahum Dershowitz. I think it would be showing kavod to include both their names under the "About" page on Hebcal.org, as they are the ones who contributed the core technology. Here is a page with more information:
