[yr,mn,dy]=jd2cal(jd)
function [yr,mn,dy]=jd2cal(jd)
% JD2CAL  Converts Julian date to calendar date using algorithm
%   from "Practical Ephemeris Calculations" by Oliver Montenbruck
%   (Springer-Verlag, 1989). Must use astronomical year for B.C.
%   dates (2 BC = -1 yr). Non-vectorized version. See also CAL2JD,
%   DOY2JD, GPS2JD, JD2DOW, JD2DOY, JD2GPS, JD2YR, YR2JD.
% Version: 24 Apr 99
% Usage:   [yr, mn, dy]=jd2cal(jd)
% Input:   jd - Julian date
% Output:  yr - year of calendar date
%          mn - month of calendar date
%          dy - day of calendar date (including decimal)
