    Write a program to get a date from the user in the format day/month/year. Tip: use extra variables to read the /. The program should check the three parts of the date (day, month, year), and print a warning message for any part of the date that is wrong. If the whole date is correct, it should print a message saying that the date is valid. The normal rules for dates apply: valid days are from 1 to 28, 29, 30, or 31 (depending on the month and on whether the year is a leap year. You might want to use a switch statement to perform this task.); valid months are from 1 to 12; valid years start from 1582 (the year in which our current calendar system started). The rule for deciding if a year is a leap year is as follows: a year evenly divisible by 4 is a leap year; except if the year is evenly divisible by 100, in which case it is not a leap year; except if the year is evenly divisible by 400, in which case it is a leap year.
    Examples:
    ./date_check
    Enter a date (d/m/y): 29/2/2002
    The day 29 is not valid!


    ./date_check
    Enter a date (d/m/y): 32/15/1002
    The year 1002 is not valid!
    The month 15 is not valid!
    The day 32 is not valid!


    ./date_check
    Enter a date (d/m/y): 20/9/2002
    The given date is valid.

    Hey coop.Are You posting your school homework ??:nonod:
    I suggest you try out these programs yourself and then ask for help.Trust me it would help you to learn.Still I think a lot of members would be willing to help if you try atleast and paste some code.No one will do it for you.Also I guess you are starting with c/c++
    I suggest you see this http://www.codersource.net/codersour...ogramming.html
    .It would help you with the basics.
    Otherwise if you don't really want to do that I suggest you search google there are thousands of programs(maybe if you are lucky you might find a program which does similar to what you want to do) this way you'll have a better chance completing your program(if you really dont want to do it yourself).Hope that helped
