Date Algorithms

Studying Y2K lead me to two interesting things: source code analysis and date algorithms.

  • Catalog of Free Compilers and interpreters, including YACC and LEX and the like. I particularly lust after the SQL processors.
  • Reasoning Systems Home Page where they describe their tools for language manipulation.
  • Reingold and Dershowitz’s Calendrical Calculations: a set of algorithms that everyone should use for date manipulation.

Some additional date and software development junk:

  • A fun applet showing how much time remains before some big event. I used it for Y2K countdown, now it’s my retirement clock.
  • A useless cost estimating applet to help do year 2000 compliance planning.
  • A useful Calendar show holidays in a given year.
