``````import calendar
my_cal= calendar.Calendar()
for x in my_cal.monthdays2calendar(2020,7):
print(x)``````
Output
``````[(0, 0), (0, 1), (1, 2), (2, 3), (3, 4), (4, 5), (5, 6)]
[(6, 0), (7, 1), (8, 2), (9, 3), (10, 4), (11, 5), (12, 6)]
[(13, 0), (14, 1), (15, 2), (16, 3), (17, 4), (18, 5), (19, 6)]
[(20, 0), (21, 1), (22, 2), (23, 3), (24, 4), (25, 5), (26, 6)]
[(27, 0), (28, 1), (29, 2), (30, 3), (31, 4), (0, 5), (0, 6)]``````
By updating the first day of the week we can get different elements of the list.
``````import calendar
my_cal= calendar.Calendar(firstweekday=0)
for x in my_cal.monthdays2calendar(2020,7):
print(x)``````
As we are getting a list as output, we can get total number of weeks in a month and number of days in a week. We are using len() here to get number of elements.
``````import calendar
my_cal= calendar.Calendar(firstweekday=0)
y=my_cal.monthdays2calendar(2020,7)
print("Number of weeks",len(y))
print("Number of days in week",len(y))``````
Output
``````Number of weeks 5
Number of days in week 7``````
As we are getting a list of days as tuple for each week , we can display day and week day number like this.
``````import calendar
my_cal= calendar.Calendar(firstweekday=0)
for x in my_cal.monthdays2calendar(2020,7):
for y in x:
print("Day :",y,", Day of week",y)``````
Output
``````Day : 0 , Day of week 0
Day : 0 , Day of week 1
Day : 1 , Day of week 2
Day : 2 , Day of week 3
Day : 3 , Day of week 4
Day : 4 , Day of week 5
Day : 5 , Day of week 6
