Python: Calculate number of days between two dates
Python Basic: Exercise-14 with Solution
Write a Python program to calculate number of days between two dates.
Python datetime.date(year, month, day) :
The function returns date object with same year, month and day. All arguments are required. Arguments may be integers, in the following ranges:
- MINYEAR <= year <= MAXYEAR
- 1 <= month <= 12
- 1 <= day <= number of days in the given month and year
If an argument outside those ranges is given, ValueError is raised.
- Note: The smallest year number allowed in a date or datetime object. MINYEAR is 1.
- The largest year number allowed in a date or datetime object. MAXYEAR is 9999.
from datetime import date f_date = date(2014, 7, 2) l_date = date(2014, 7, 11) delta = l_date - f_date print(delta.days)
