Class greg_year

boost::gregorian::greg_year — Represent a day of the month (range 1900 - 10000)


// In header: <boost/date_time/gregorian/greg_year.hpp>

class greg_year {
  // construct/copy/destruct
  greg_year(unsigned short);

  // public member functions
  operator unsigned short() const;


This small class allows for simple conversion an integer value into a year for the gregorian calendar. This currently only allows a range of 1900 to 10000. Both ends of the range are a bit arbitrary at the moment, but they are the limits of current testing of the library. As such they may be increased in the future.

greg_year public construct/copy/destruct

  1. greg_year(unsigned short year);

greg_year public member functions
