Of course it is perl. I usually post perl when saying that.

I may be able to post it now ( after-lunch break, not napping ) but I
posted it because the couple of tricks used ( using an array of days
before the 1st of a month, calculating from an easy fake day like
syntethic year 0 and substracting the epoch ) may not be known ( by a
person who like the OP has trouble with dates ).
