% This function will convert the calendar date to Julian Date.
% For example: suppose I have a date from a leap year such as 1st March
% 1904.
% The corresponding Julian Date of the calender date will be 61. Similarly,
% if I have a date of 1st March 1905 from a regular year, the Julian Date
% will be 60.
% Input: date: it is an array with three columns. The first, second and
% third column corresponds to year, month and day respectively.
