(This is a hard dead-line for both hard copy and drop-box submission.
Do not leave it to the last minute.
`I couldn't get my printer to work' or `The network was down at 4:30' are
not accepted excuses for lateness.)
Write a program that prompts the user for a month and year, then displays
a representation of the month on the screen.
What day the month starts on
Reverend Zeller developed a formula for computing the day of the week on
which a date fell or will fall. Suppose we let a, b, c, and d be integers
defined as follows:
For example July 31, 1929 gives the values a=5, b=31, c=29, d=19 and January 3, 1970
gives a=11, b=3, c=69, d=19.
Note the value of the year!.
- a = The number of the month with March = 1, April = 2, and so on, with
January and February counted as months 11 and 12 of the preceding year.
- b = day of the month
- c = year of the century
- d = century
Now calculate the integer values:
The resulting value of r will contain the day of the week on which the date
falls with 0 representing Sunday, 1 representing Monday, etc.
- w = (13a - 1)/5
- x = c/4
- y = d/4
- z = w + x + y + b + c - 2d + 7
- r = ((z modulo 7) + 7) modulo 7
Most months use a standard length of either 30 or 31 days. The number of days
in February depends on whether or not it is a leap year. To calculate whether
or not a certain year is a leap year, you use the following rules:
For example the year 1996 was a leap year. The year 1900 is divisible by 100
but not by 400 so it is not a leap year. The year 2000 is divisible by 100 and
400 so it is a leap year.
- if a year is a multiple of 4 then it is a leap year unless it breaks
the next rule.
- if the year is multiple of 100 and a multiple of 400 it is a leap year.
Recall: The integer x is evenly divisible by y if x%y == 0.

Some specifications of functions to use in your program:
void print_monthname(int month, int year)
/* Displays the name of the given month m on a line by itself.
month - month number (1 - January, ..., 12 - December)*/
int month_length(int month, int year)
/* Computes the number of days in the given month. The year is required to determine if
February has 28 or 29 days.
month - month we are interested in; year - year we are interested in
returns - the number of days in the given month */
int is_leap_year(int year)
/* Determines if the given year is a leap year; year - the year we are interested in
returns - 1 if the year is a leap year; 0 if the year is not a leap year */
int first_day(int month, int year);
month - the month we would like to see;
year - the year we are interested in
returns - the day of the week on which the first day of the given month
falls within the given year.
int print_month(int month, int year, int day)
/* Displays the days of the given month in the usual calendar form.
month - the month we would like to see; year - the year we are interested in; day - the
starting day of the month
returns - the starting day of the next month. If this month ends on day 3 then next month
should start on day 4.
