in thread Determining the dayname for the last day of any given month
That all makes perfect sense. Just two points to add:
- People come to this site a look for examples of code to copy or adapt. If you're writing code here that is just a quick hack (and there's no reason why you shouldn't do that) then please clearly mark it as such so that it doesn't get misused in the future.
- There are, of course, times when running external programs is a good idea (as long as you're aware of my caveats above). Date and time handling is never one of those times :-)
