Since the calendar module in the stdlib-1.17.1 application of Erlang/OTP R14B did not provide this functionality, I decided to write it myself. It's based on the calendar module and was tested successfully with eunit.

Hi Imre,

Thanks for your contribution, but we can not include it into 'pu' as it 
is now.
You need to follow the instructions 
(https://github.com/erlang/otp/wiki/submitting-patches), and
since this is a new feature you also need to provide some test cases.

Best regards,
Niclas Axelsson, Erlang/OTP
