The Java Gregorian Calendar class was a delightful piece of software
when I last used it (15 or so years ago). It does know the difference
between the Julian and Gregorian calendars, among other things. I used
it in a lease generation program; the program is still in use, and
it's never made a mistake. AFAIK.

Not as easy to use as Bash, though...
