Maybe something like that:


from time import mktime, strptime
from sys import argv

class DummyDate:
    def __init__(self, strdate, format):
        self.ticks = mktime(strptime(strdate, format));

    def __sub__(self, obj):
        return int(self.ticks - obj.ticks) / 86400;

(prg, a, b, fmt) = argv
print DummyDate(a, fmt) - DummyDate(b, fmt)
## end

Or using a sh script with date(1)
