DateWithinQ

DateWithinQ[date1,date2]

returns True if the calendar date date2 is entirely contained within date1, and False otherwise.

Details

  • In DateWithinQ[date1, date2], both date1 and date2 should be specified as DateObject expressions of any calendar granularity.
  • DateWithinQ accepts lists of dates in both arguments, effectively calling Outer on the input lists.
  • DateWithinQ returns True only if date2 falls entirely within the period represented by date1.

If a date object is within another, their difference will be zero of the largest calendar granularity:

If a date object is within another, they cannot be compared because they overlap:
