 After studying several DayOfWeeks i got sick.
 None of them worked really correctly and most
 had over 15 DIV'/MOD's or * in it.
 The Zeller's congruence was the best but the
 routine also contains some range errors. Years
 are only valid from 1..6300 and its really slow,
 so i wrote my own..

 About the routines..
 routine results valid if year in 0..65536
 month in 1..12, and day in 1..28/29/30/31
 there is absolute no range checking..

function DayOfWeek(year,month,day:word):word;
{Returns the day of week, 0=Sun..6=Sat}
assembler; {See 1995}
const mtable:array[0..11] of byte=
  (0,3, 3,6, 1,4, 6,2, 5,0, 3,5);
{(Y+(Y div 4)-(Y div 100)+(Y div 400)-Adjust)mod 7}
        mov    ax,year
        mov    di,ax

        mov    si,day
        dec    si
        shr    ax,1; adc cl,0 {si+=year div 4}
        shr    ax,1; adc cl,0
        add    si,ax
        mov    bx,25          {si+=year div 100}
        xor    dx,dx
        div    bx
        sub    si,ax
        shr    ax,1; adc ch,0 {si+=year div 400}
        shr    ax,1; adc ch,0
