NAME
       Date::DayOfWeek - Determine the day of the week for any date.

SYNOPSIS
	 use Date::DayOfWeek;
	 $dow =	dayofweek( 25, 10, 1971	); # dd, mm, yyyy

DESCRIPTION
       Calculates the day of the week for any date in the Gregorian calendar
       (1563 and following).  Based on the Doomsday algorithm of John Conway.

dayofweek
	   $dow	= dayofweek( 25, 10, 1971 );
	   $dow	= dayofweek( 4,	7, 1776	);

       Returns the day of the week for any date	between	1500 and 2699.

       Month should be in the range 1..12

       The day of week that is returned	is an integer in the range 0..6, with
       0 = sunday, 1 = monday, etc.
