I have some 16-bit Turbo C++ C source code to convert the Gregorian Calendar 
to the Jewish calendar here:


It's MIT/X11, but will take some effort to adapt and I've found much more 
elegant code in C in the past on the Net (which during my work for Cortext Web 
Design, I translated into Perl 5, back in 1996ish. It was since lost.).  I 
think it was GPLed.

I also have versions of this code in COBOL.NET, Intercal, PDP-10 Assembly, J, 
APL, Windows NT 4.0 Batch script and Autocad Lisp - I'm sure you can handle 
all of them because none of them is Perl. ;-).

Perlfully and Painfully yours,
