        Programing Assignment 3


        Program Description:

            My program will be able to make a calendar for a 
        mythical country by asking the user for the number of days 
        in the month and the day the month begins on. The calendar
        outputted will be made up in columns ands rows like you 
        would see in most common day calendars are.

        Program Preconditions: 

            Input starting day as a letter, which should be 
        either R,r,B,b,G,g,Y,y,P,p,M,m,O,o,T,t,S,or s, this 
        representing the colordays Redday,Blueday,Greenday,
        Yellowday,Purpleday,Maroonday,Orangeday,Tanday, and 
        Silverday. 

            The number of days in the month must be a number 
        between 27 and 37.

            The input of festival month should be entered
        either as Y or y for Yes it is a festival month, or N   
        or n stating NO its not a festival month.

        Program Post-conditions: 

            The output of this program will be a calendar
        arranged in columns and in rows making the first row the 
        days of the week abd the column showing which day of the 
        month will that day will land on. The calendar will have
        27-37 days on it and have 9 days named after colors.

            Fesival month- If you choose the month to be a 
        festival month then the calendar will be outputted
        like any other month but 4 days,Maroonday-Silverday, 
        at the end of the week will not be counted because they
        take a break from work and rest during festival month.

please help!

Edited 3 Years Ago by happygeek: fixed formatting

i thing i saw why do u use the upper case and lower caselike for R,r etc... make it simpler!!!!but wat u can do is that use either lower case only or uppercase only. this i amm sure wont solve the problema as a whole but will certainly help to reduce considerably the anount of mistakes ihncurred

hello are you the same person who asked for help with the calendar a while back? technically according to the forum announcment i couldnt really post anything as you didnt post any code but i went ahead anyway as i had a bit of spare time. Did you get it working as i created a class to manage the calendar and got a system working...?
