HOMEWORK 2A Due: Monday,June6,2015,11:59pm 1. WriteaMATLABscriptthattakesadateasinputandreturnsthedayoftheweek. In the model problem explored in class, we took two times as input and computed the elapsed time in between. This homework problem is a slight variation on that. Your program should: (a) Take 3 separate command line inputs for a given date in the following format: MMM DD YYYY You can prompt the user with a question, Please enter the month as MMM (e.g. JAN): Please enter the day as DD (e.g. 01): Please enter the year as YYYY (e.g. 2000): (b) Check the validity of the input and return an error if necessary. If the user inputs an unreasonable value (e.g., YYYY as A6&@) or inputs a date that doesn’t exist (e.g., JAN 32 2000 or FEB 29 2014) return an error message to the command window. Design your program to work for positive year values from 0001 to 9999 (we’ll ignore the complication of converting from Julian to Gregorian dates and assume that the Gregorian calendar can be extended backwards past October 1582). Also, make sure to take leap years into account.
