compute the number of days in a given year
DaysInYear( year )
integer; the year whose length in days is to be computed
The DaysInYear( year ) command computes the number of days in the year year. The number of days is either 365 for an ordinary year or 366 in a leap year. There is also an exception for the year 1582, the year of calendar reform, which is missing 10 days.
Leap years prior to 1582 occur every four years. After 1582, the modern leap year rules are used.
Leap years prior to the year 5 were observed inconsistently, and may be historically incorrect.
The Calendar[DaysInYear] command was introduced in Maple 2018.
