Date::Calc

http://www.engelschall.com/u/sb/download/
Calculates dates in Gregorian calendar

The Date::Calc package consists of a C library and a Perl module (which uses the C library internally) for all kinds of date calculations based on the Gregorian calendar (the one used in all Western countries today), thereby complying with all relevant norms and standards: ISO/R 2015-1971, DIN 1355 and, to some extent, ISO 8601 (where applicable). The package is designed as a toolbox, not a ready-made application. It provides extensive documentation and examples of use, multi-language support, and special functions for business needs. The C library is specifically designed so that it can be used stand-alone, without Perl. Version 5.0 features date objects with overloaded operators, and a set of modules for calculations which take legal holidays into account (both in Perl only).
