    Working out leap years.

    Hey i need some help working out wether a year is a leap year or not. Just needs to return a boolean value. What would be placed in my code?

    Code:
    bool Date::isLeapYear()
    {
    }
    I've tried a few things and certain dates dont return a correct value. I know its something to do with dividing by 100 and 400 but i cant get it right.
    Cheers.

    Yes i have searched but i cant find anything in C++ that is exactly what i require. I only want a simple answer if that isnt too much to ask. It only has to be the formula. I will be calling it later on in the program.

    Well you're obviously not looking hard enough

    If you're always going to give up on anything which takes more than 5(seconds,clicks), then you're not cut out for software.
