See question 20.31 in http://www.eskimo.com/~scs/C-faq/top.html

uestion 20.31

How can I find the day of the week given the date?

Use mktime or localtime (see questions 13.13 and 13.14, but beware of DST adjustments if tm_hour is 0),
or Zeller's congruence (see the sci.math FAQ list), or this elegant code by Tomohiko Sakamoto:

dayofweek(y, m, d)      /* 0 = Sunday */
int y, m, d;            /* 1 <= m <= 12,  y > 1752 or so */
{
        static int t[] = {0, 3, 2, 5, 0, 3, 5, 1, 4, 6, 2, 4};
        y -= m < 3;
        return (y + y/4 - y/100 + y/400 + t[m-1] + d) % 7;
}
