Starting day of month, month length


Does anyone have an algorithm that shows how to calculate the first day of the month, and the number of days? How would I know if a month started on Wednesday?

I don't know what language you are using but Java's calendar class can do all that and more.

Code:

#include <stdlib.h>
/* parameters 1 - month as a number from 1 - 12  2 - year (from 1900 on) */
/* this does no error checking */
int main(int argc, char *argv[]){
      int year=atoi(argv[2]);
      int month=atoi(argv[1]);
      char tmp[64]={'\0'};
      struct tm  my_tm;
      time_t timer;

      my_tm.tm_mon=month;
      timer=mktime(&my_tm);
      strftime(tmp,60,"%A is the first day of %B, %Y",&my_tm);
      printf("%s \n",tmp);
            
}    

/*
