The wonderful world of week number standards / 2013-12-30

2013-12-30 The wonderful world of week number standards 5 years ago
The wonderful thing about standards:
$ date "+%u %w %U %V %W"
1 1 52 01 52
And the explanations:

%u day of week (1..7); 1 is Monday

%w day of week (0..6); 0 is Sunday

%U week number of year, with Sunday as first day of week (00..53)

%V ISO week number, with Monday as first day of week (01..53)

%W week number of year, with Monday as first day of week (00..53)

And it's easy to find days with 3 different week numbers:
