    ISO week number

    There is a closed thread about week number which does not provide the ISO or manufacturing week number. I would like to reopen the thread

    The week number has January 4th somewhere between Monday
    and Sunday.
    Week one consists of part of last year where January 1 of the year is before the Thursday in the new year.

    Example 1
    SU MO TU WE TH FR SA SU
    29 30 31 1 2 3 4 5 This is week 1 because JAN 4 is before SU

    Example 2
    SU MO TU WE TH FR SA SU
    27 28 29 30 31 1 2 3 This could be week 52 or 53 depending
    on the starting year and leap year.

    I believe that the main function is one which for a date provides the week day number.
    It is not to difficult to calculate the starting week 1,
    but then you need to also check the cutoff for the last week in the year. Wikipaedia and ISO week number provides some good explanations, but no c or c++ code.

    An actual link to the closed thread would be useful.

    strftime
    Does your implementation support the %V format?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
