CHKLEAP         CHECK LEAP YEAR                        TAADATJ

The  Check Leap  Year  command  allows the  input  of  a 4  digit  year
between 1600  and 4000.   It returns a  Y/N value for  whether the year
is a leap year.

A typical command would be:

        DCL         &RTNVAL *CHAR LEN(1)
        IF          (&RTNVAL *EQ 'Y') DO /* It is a leap year */

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   YEAR          A  4  byte  character  variable  that  must  contain a
                 value between 1600 and 4000.

   RTNVAL        A required return variable.   It must be specified  as
                 *CHAR LEN(1).   It will contain a value of  Y or N for
                 whether the year specified is a leap year.


Only the Gregorian calendar years are supported.

Since  the command provides a  return variable, it may  only be used in
a CL program.
