QuantLib::Date Class Reference

#include <date.hpp>

List of all members.

Detailed Description

Concrete date class.

This class provides methods to inspect dates as well as methods and operators which implement a limited date algebra (increasing and decreasing dates, and calculating their difference).

self-consistency of dates, serial numbers, days of month, months, and weekdays is checked over the whole date range.
