date+

Arguments: ut number-of-days &key work-days

The value returned by date+ and related functions depends on the time zone where the machine running Lisp is located and also on whether daylight saving time is in effect. See the discussion in Day and date calculation functions in miscellaneous.htm for examples of how time zone and daylight saving time can affect results.

This function performs calculations on the day/date portion of a universal time, that is the decoded universal time ignoring the second, minute, and hour values (see decode-universal-time).

This function returns a universal time whose year/month/date is number-of-days later than the year/month/date of ut. ut must be a non-negative integer and is interpreted as a universal time (see get-universal-time). If work-days is specified true, then Saturdays and Sundays are not counted in the calculation. The hour, minute, and second of the returned universal time may be different from the hour, minute, and second of ut.

So if ut falls on a Friday, (date+ ut 2 :work-days nil) falls on a Sunday and (date+ ut 2 :work-days t) falls on a Tuesday. See Examples below for more examples.

;; Results depend on the timezone value and whether daylight saving
;; time is in effect. These are not settable by this function and
;; the values are inherited from the Operating system. To see them,
;; evaluate (decode-universal-time (get-universal-time)):

cl-user(29): (decode-universal-time (get-universal-time))
RETURNS 11 38 14 5 12 2017 1 nil 8

;; That form was evaluated at 2:38:11 PM (14:38:11) on Tuesday,
;; December 5 at Franz Inc. HQ in Oakland, California. The eighth
;; return value (nil) indicates daylight saving time was not in effect.
;; The ninth return value (8) means the timezone was 8, 8 hours
;; earlier than Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). If you are in a different
;; location or the date is different, you will get different values.
