Week 21

Week 21 is from Monday, May 20, 2024 until (and including) Sunday, May 26, 2024.

Programming routines

Microsoft Excel / LibreOffice Calc

=ISOWEEKNUM(TODAY())
			or (in older versions):
			=WEEKNUM(TODAY(),21)

Where the return type '21' is ISO-8601 (week starting on Monday).

In Excel 2007 your best choice is WEEKNUM(TODAY(),2) (2=week starting Monday).
WEEKNUM(TODAY()) will show the week number with weeks starting on Sunday (return type = 1).

Google Docs Spreadsheet

=WEEKNUM(TODAY();21)

Type (here '21') is compatible with Excel/LibreOffice, 21 is ISO-8601

PHP

$weekNumber = date("W"); 

or date("W", epoch) for other week numbers. Remember to use capital 'W' not 'w'.

Python

datetime.date.today().isocalendar()[1]

PERL

my $weekNumber = POSIX::strftime("%V", gmtime time);

Replace time with other epoch/UNIX timestamps for other week numbers.

Java

			Calendar now = Calendar.getInstance();
			now.get(Calendar.WEEK_OF_YEAR);
            

Use WEEK_OF_YEAR in the Calendar class.

JavaScript

			Date.prototype.getWeek = function () {
			    var target  = new Date(this.valueOf());
			    var dayNr   = (this.getDay() + 6) % 7;
			    target.setDate(target.getDate() - dayNr + 3);
			    var firstThursday = target.valueOf();
			    target.setMonth(0, 1);
			    if (target.getDay() != 4) {
			        target.setMonth(0, 1 + ((4 - target.getDay()) + 7) % 7);
			    }
			    return 1 + Math.ceil((firstThursday - target) / 604800000);
			}

			var d= new Date();
			alert(d.getWeek());
