I need a script in ksh that when I provide a month and year as input let us say JAN-2009 then it should split the dates into weeks and I need to store them as

WEEK1_START = '2009-01-01-00.00.00'
WEEK1_END = '2009-01-09-00.00.00'
WEEK2_START =  '2009-01-09-00.00.00'
WEEK2_END = '2009-01-16-00.00.00'
WEEK3_START ='2009-01-16-00.00.00'
WEEK3_END = '2009-01-23-00.00.00'
WEEK4_START = '2009-01-23-00.00.00'
WEEK4_END =  '2009-02-01-00.00.00'

Let me know how to get this.. I wanted weekly dates in this format since I wanted to use the above values in my db2 script which has datetime as datatype.. Thanks!!

how do you decide when a week starts and ends?
it looks like your weeks are 8, 9, or 10 days long, and usually start and end on a Friday.
Can you explain the rules for how that works?

I looked at man typeset and did not see option for -n
I changed that value to -x and still got syntax errors. Hope I get a solution that is tested, here is the syntax error..
./weekly_dates.ksh[23]:   % 12 + 1 : syntax error - any clues?
