Would you start from the H.H implementation, mine or would start from a
i will start with HH implementation
What do you think of date iterators?
date iterator should be random access iterators since user can either do
increment ,decrement ,
cheaks for equality ,ineaquality all these can be done after making date
iterator as random
What about I/O?
date are streamable and
strftime() and strptime() can be used to format the date
*strftime*() function formats break the date into formats and stores the
result in character array while *strptime*() process the input string from
left to right .whitespace, literal, or format are handled one by one by one
but it stops processing when it doesn't match the format string .
strptime("1991-01-12 18:31:01", "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S", &tm);
What are the functions a class date or a model of a concept Date must
class date should have following features or function ;
1)compares 2 dates and returning integral values
2)checks for equality.
3)add,subtract 2 dates
4)input and setting of long date format(dd,mm,yy, hh,min,sec)
5)to initialize the date with another copy of date object (creating
6)prior and post date check
7)implementation of constructor to initialize the date with string ,full
It would be great if you mark the features as MUST, SHOULD, and COULD in
order to make clear the priorities.

No invalid dates can be entered considering range checking ,non
existent date if entered bad_date exception is thrown
yes i want to check the date is valid or not .and if not bad_date exception
it will increase the time consume but always yield correct result.

Do you mean that you pretend to memoize the conversions?
yes , i meant the same.
i have one question ?
Your proposal is more a list of functionalities than a clear design.
