Fix Python – How do we determine the number of days for a given month in python [duplicate]

Question

Asked By – Joel James

I need to calculate the number of days for a given month in python. If a user inputs Feb 2011 the program should be able to tell me that Feb 2011 has 28 days. Could any one tell me which library I should use to determine the length of a given month.

Now we will see solution for issue: How do we determine the number of days for a given month in python [duplicate]


Answer

You should use calendar.monthrange:

>>> from calendar import monthrange
>>> monthrange(2011, 2)
(1, 28)

Just to be clear, monthrange supports leap years as well:

>>> from calendar import monthrange
>>> monthrange(2012, 2)
(2, 29)

As @mikhail-pyrev mentions in a comment:

First number is the weekday of the first day of the month, the second number is the number of days in said month.
