You are required to design and write an application that will analyze an input file (InputFile.txt); the file contains a date on each line. Your algorithm should output all the missing dates, excluding Saturdays and Sundays. You should not cater for public holidays. Also keep in mind: each leap year (every 4 years) contains an extra date for February 29th. Leap years: 2000, 2004, 2008, …
Your results should also output a date range instead of each individual date; if there is more than one concurrent date missing. For example: if you are missing 2008/02/03, 2008/02/04 and 2008/02/05 you should output 2008/02/03 – 2008/02/05.
Your output should be written to a file (OutputFile.txt). A folder will be created on the Local Drive with your Name, this folder should contain all your solution and source files, as well as your output file.
This test will be marked and evaluated on the following:
• Architecture used.
• Your ability to follow simple instructions.
• Error handling.
If you input was:
Your output should be:
2008/01/15 – 2008/01/17
