days365

Days between dates based on 365-day year

Syntax

  • NumDays = days365(StartDate,EndDate)
    example

Description

example

NumDays = days365(StartDate,EndDate) returns the number of days between StartDate and EndDate based on a 365-day year. All months contain their actual number of days. February always contains 28 days.

If EndDate is earlier than StartDate, NumDays is negative. Under this convention, all months contain 30 days.

Either input argument can contain multiple values, but if so, the other must contain the same number of values or a single value that applies to all. For example, if StartDate is an N-row character array of date character vectors, then EndDate must be an N-by-1 vector of integers or a single integer. NumDays is then an N-by-1 vector of date numbers.

Examples

collapse all

Determine the NumDays using date character vectors for StartDate and EndDate.

NumDays = days365('15-jan-2000', '15-mar-2000')
NumDays =

    59

Determine the NumDays using a datetime array for StartDate.

NumDays = days365(datetime('15-jan-2000','Locale','en_US'), '15-mar-2000')
NumDays =

    59

Determine the NumDays using a vector for EndDate.

MoreDays = ['15-mar-2000'; '15-apr-2000'; '15-jun-2000'];
NumDays = days365('15-jan-2000', MoreDays)
NumDays =
