A Program To Tell Ur Zodiac Sign by xteve(m): 4:49pm On Dec 27, 2012
Hi programmers in the house Hope u all had a wonderful Christmas Celebration?

I have been thinking on a proper algorithm/way to write a simple program that will prompt a user to enter his personal details. Then the program should be able to tell the person's zodiac sign using Java, C++ or even python.
Below are the zodiac signs and their dates

Aries March 21-April 20
Taurus April 21 - May 21
Gemini May 22 - June 21
Cancer June 22 - July 22
Leo July 23 - August 22
Virgo August 23 - September 22
Libra September 23 - October 22
Scorpio October 23 - November 21
Sagittarius November 22 - December 21
Capricorn December 22 - January 19
Aquarius January 20 - February 18
Pisces February 19 - March 20


Any opinion will be welcm

Re: A Program To Tell Ur Zodiac Sign by Javanian: 8:30pm On Jan 02, 2013
Please what exactly don't you get? The API or how the API can solve the problem at hand?
Re: A Program To Tell Ur Zodiac Sign by lordZOUGA(m): 9:01pm On Jan 02, 2013
Javanian: Please what exactly don't you get? The API or how the API can solve the problem at hand?
how the calendar api efficiently solves this problem
Re: A Program To Tell Ur Zodiac Sign by Javanian: 9:17pm On Jan 02, 2013
i can't say for sure what he had in mind, but the API has a compareTo method that returns 0 if the dates are equal, >0 if the date in the parameter is after the the initial date and <0 if its before the initial date.
