WEEKDAY  PowerBASIC  Function

         

WEEKDAY$ function evaluates to abbreviated name of the day of a week (Sun, Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat) for the date specified as its parameter.  Date should be specified in one of the formats MM-DD-YY or MM-DD-CCYY and should be a valid date in Gregorian calendar.  If parameter doesn't represent a valid date, "***" is returned instead of day of a week value.  If century is omitted, the current century is assumed.  Date field delimiters are expected to be in the fixed positions 3 and 5; values of delimiters are insignificant.  If parameter is empty, day of a week value is returned for the current date.

Direct dependency:

VALDGRE% Check date for valid Gregorian value function (predicate)

Indirect dependencies:

DIGITAL% Check character string for digital value function (predicate)
LEAP% Check year for leap value function (predicate)

      ' Type -------------------------------------------------------------------------

      '    Function

      ' Description ------------------------------------------------------------------

      '    WEEKDAY$ function returns the name of the day of a week (abbreviated
      '    to three characters) for the specified date.

      ' Parameter --------------------------------------------------------------------

      '    Spec_Date$  - Specified date in the form of MM-DD-YY or MM-DD-CCYY
      '                  (should be a valid date in Gregorian calendar)

      ' Value ------------------------------------------------------------------------

      '    Three character day of the week identification for the specified date.

      ' Notes ------------------------------------------------------------------------

      '  - Delimiters of parameter date fields are irrelevant and can be any
      '    symbols.  Date fields are extracted from fixed positions.

      '  - IF century part is not specified (total year length is 2 characters),
      '       THEN CURRENT century is assumed (two digit of century get appended
      '            before YY).

      '  - If specified date is EMPTY,
      '       then day of a week identification is returned for the CURRENT date.

      '  - IF specified date doesn't represent a proper Gregorian calendar date,
      '       THEN "***" is returned instead of day of a week identification
      '            as an eye-catcher for an error in date specification.

      '  - Day of a week is determined by the formula that was derived from the
      '    algorithm suggested by Christian Zeller in 1883 (Zeller's Congruence).

      '    D  - Day   within specified month
      '    M  - Month within specified year
      '    Y  - Year (full 4-digit including century)

      '    If (M<3)
      '       M=M+12
      '       Y=Y-1

      '    WDI=(D+INT((13*M-27)/5)+Y+INT(Y/4)-INT(Y/100)+INT(Y/400)) MOD 7

      '    WDI - Week Day Index for the given date (0-Sun, 1-Mon, ..., 6-Sat)

      '  - Formula works for dates after 09/14/1752 - when England and its
      '    colonies switched from Julian calendar to currently used Gregorian.
