%
% --- \today generates today's date. Alter this to suit
% --- the way you want it to appear. It is currently
% --- set up to generate dates in the form
% --- `Thursday 4th October 1066'
%
% --- \thisdayofweek generates today's day name (`Sunday', etc).
% --- \thisday generates today's day (`1', `2', etc).
% --- \thisdayth generates today's day (`1st', `2nd', etc),
% --- where the `st' etc are generated by \st etc.
% --- \thismonth generates today's month (`January', etc).
% --- \thisyear generates today's year.
% --- \thisphaseofmoon generates the current phase of the moon.
%
% --- \dayofweek{year}{month}{day} generates the day of the week for
% the given date.
%
% --- \phaseofmoon{year}{month}{day} generates the phase of the moon
% for the given date.
%
% --- \Sunday (etc) generates `Sunday' (etc).
% --- \January (etc) generates 'January' (etc).
% --- \NewMoon (etc) generates `new' (etc).
%
% --- \st generates a raised, reduced, underlined `st', as in 1st.
% --- \nd generates a raised, reduced, underlined `nd', as in 2nd.
% --- \rd generates a raised, reduced, underlined `rd', as in 3rd.
% --- \th generates a raised, reduced, underlined `th', as in 4th.
% --- ------------------------------------------------------------------
% --- The actual date macros.
% --- As distributed, \today generates today's date in the style
% --- `Thursday 4th October 1066'.

% --- Counters. Note that we use the same registers as TeX holds other
% --- things in (e.g., \count0 holds the page number). This requires
% --- that \@savestyle, \@setstyle, \dayofweek and \phaseofmoon perform
% --- all their register manipulations within a group. This may seem
% --- a bit messy, but it saves having eight registers permanently set
% --- aside just for date calculation.
\def\@cent{\count0 } % century number (1979 == 20)
\def\@diy{\count1 } % day in the year
\def\@dow{\count2 } % gets day of the week
\def\@epact{\count3 } % age of the moon on Jan. 1
\def\@golden{\count4 } % Moon's golden number
\def\@leap{\count5 } % leap year fingaler
\def\@x{\count6 } % temp register
\def\@y{\count7 } % another temp register
% --- ------------------------------------------------------------------
% --- For `old' (pre version 2.10) LaTeX, these macros ensure the
% --- smaller text comes out in the right font by saving the font
% --- family before reducing the size, then restoring it.
% --- (This hack was suggested by Leslie Lamport.) Of course, it
% --- requires that the font in use when the caller is invoked has
% --- a sensible family.
% --- For LaTeX 2.10 onwards, which uses the font selection scheme due
% --- to Mittelbach and Shoepf, such a hack is not necessary. The
% --- macros detect which version is in use automagically.

% --- The nitty-gritty.
% --- The day of the week (\Sunday, etc.) is inserted into the text
% --- by \dayofweek. (This uses registers \@dow, \@leap, \@x and \@y.)
% --- I acquired this from elsewhere; it was apparently written by
% --- Martin Minow, now a DEC employee. The algorithms is:
% --- leap = year + (month - 14)/12;
% --- dow = (13 * (month + 10 - (month + 10)/13*12) - 1)/5
% --- dow += day + 77 + 5 * (leap % 100)/4
% --- dow += leap / 400
% --- dow -= leap / 100 * 2
% --- dow = (dow % 7)

% --- Likewise, \phaseofmoon inserts the phase of the moon into the
% --- text. This was written by the same person as \dayofweek.
% --- The routine calculates the year's epact (the age of the moon on Jan 1.),
% --- adds this to the number of days in the year, and calculates the phase
% --- of the moon for this date. It returns the phase as a string, e.g.,
% --- \NewMoon, \FullMoon, etc.
%
% --- In the algorithm:
% --- diy is the day of the year - 1 (i.e., Jan 1 is day 0).
% --- golden is the number of the year in the Mentonic cycle, used to
% --- determine the position of the calender moon.
% --- epact is the age of the calender moon (in days) at the beginning
% --- of the year. To calculate epact, two century-based
% --- corrections are applied:
% --- Gregorian: (3 * cent)/4 - 12
% --- is the number of years such as 1700, 1800 when
% --- leap year was not held.
% --- Clavian: (((8 * cent) + 5) / 25) - 5
% --- is a correction to the Mentonic cycle of about
% --- 8 days every 2500 years. Note that this will
% --- overflow 16 bits in the year 409600. Beware.
% --- The algorithm is accurate for the Gregorian calender only.
%
% --- The magic numbers used in the phase calculation are:
% --- 29.5 The moon's period in days.
% --- 177 29.5 scaled by 6
% --- 22 (29.5 / 8) scaled by 6 (this gets the phase)
% --- 11 ((29.5 / 8) / 2) scaled by 6
%
% --- Theoretically, this should yield a number in the range 0 .. 7. However,
% --- two days per year, things don't work out too well.
%
% --- Epact is calculated by the algorithm given in Knuth vol. 1 (Calculation
% --- of Easter). See also the article on Calenders in the Encyclopaedia
% --- Britannica and Knuth's algorithm in CACM April 1962, page 209.

REVISION HISTORY
1.00--0 3-Aug-1990 First version
1.00--1 4-Aug-1992 Corrected \dayofweek: it was generating
additional spaces before the day-name: this was
significant in {tabular} environments, and
screwed up alignment no end. Disabled the
\phaseofmoon definitions, which are of little
interest to most people.
