## @deftypefnx {Function File} {} daysact (@var{d1}, @var{d2})
## Calculates the number of days between two dates. If the second date is not
## given, calculate the number of days since 1-Jan-0000. The variables @var{d1}
## and @var{d2} can either be strings or an @var{n}-row string matrix. If both
## @var{d1} and @var{d2} are string matrices, then the number of rows must 
## match. An example of the use of @code{daysact} is
##
## @example
## @group
## daysact ("01-Jan-2007", ["10-Jan-2007"; "23-Feb-2007"; "23-Jul-2007"])
## @result{}      9
##        53
##       203
## @end group
## @end example
