Re: Determining the dayname for the last day of any given month

in reply to Determining the dayname for the last day of any given month

My approach using standard module Time::Local:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Time::Local; while (1) { print "Enter year (yyyy) and month (mm), separated by a space:"; chomp(my $input = <STDIN>); last if !$input; my ($year, $month) = split / /, $input; my $dayname = (qw(Sun Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat))[(gmtime(timegm(0,0 +,0,1,$month % 12,$year + $month / 12)-1))[6]]; print "The last day of $month/$year will be a $dayname\n"; }
It works by substracting 1 second from the timestamp of 00:00:00 the first of the following month.

    After reaeding greenFox' comment I realised: Substracting isn't necessary!
    #!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Time::Local; while (1) { print "Enter year (yyyy) and month (mm), separated by a space:"; chomp(my $input = <STDIN>); last if !$input; my ($year, $month) = split / /, $input; my $dayname = (qw(Sat Sun Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri))[(gmtime(timegm(0,0 +,0,1,$month % 12,$year + $month / 12)))[6]]; print "The last day of $month/$year will be a $dayname\n"; }
    Simply rotate the daynames...

    +.+=%;.#_}\&"^"-+%*).}%:##%}={~=~:.")&e&&s""`$''`"e
