Program to check if a date is valid or not

Given a date, check if it is valid or not. It may be assumed that the given date is in range from 01/01/1800 to 31/12/9999.

Examples :

Input : d = 10, m = 12, y = 2000
Output : Yes
The given date 10/12/2000 is valid

Input  : d = 30, m = 2, y = 2000
Output : No
The given date 30/2/2000 is invalid. The
February month cannot have 30 as day.

The idea is simple. We need to handle following things.
1) y, m and d are in allowed range.
2) Days in February are in allowed range and leap year is handled.
3) Days in 30 day months are handled.

Below is C++/Python implementation to check if a given year is valid or not.
