    Consider the types of calculations our brains make each time we’re confronted with a calendar:

    It’s clear there’s more to dealing with dates than simply organizing data in order of significance, or displaying an individual datum. In this solution, we’ll look at some of the common problems you may encounter when dealing with dates and times. In particular, we’ll see how to deal with

    1. days of the week
    2. weeks of the year
    3. days of the year
    4. the number of days in a month
    5. leap years
    In the process, we’ll build a class that can be easily reused in your own applications.

    The following code lays the foundation for the class:

    The constructor checks to see whether you’ve passed any values for a date, the arguments appearing in the order year, month, day, hour, minute and finally second. Any parameter for which you fail to provide a numeric value will assume the current date or time. The constructor then turns this into a timestamp, which will make later calculations easier.
