    Simple Calendar question for find day of the week.

    Suppose I have a calendar program to where someone enters a month and a year. How would I find out, what the start of the day is?

    Example: I enter 2 for month and 2003 for years. Thus, the first day of the month would return '7' (Sat).

    How would I write a function for this?

    goto this sites source code section. There is a calender program in there somewhere. It illustrates Zeller's algorithm. This algorithm can produce the day of the week for any given date in the gregorian calender.There is also plenty of info online on zellers algo.

    ?

    Well, it just ask you for the year and it will output the whole calendar. I wanted one when there's a functon that passes two paremeters (int month, int year) and it will return a number (1-7) depending on the first day of the week.
