given a date (10/19/98) how do your determine the week day?

What is the easiest way to determine the day of week when given only a date such as 10/19/97 ? In other words, how do I find out if 10/19/97 is a Monday, Tuesday, ect?

Download and install Date::Calc from www.perl.com or whereever.  Then



use Date::Calc;

$a = '10/19/97';
($m, $d, $y) = split(/\//, $a);
$dow = Date::Calc::Day_of_Week($y, $m, $d); # gives 6
$dowtext = Date::Calc::Day_of_Week_to_Text($dow); # gives 'Saturday'
