Can you recommend any free, convenient and faster than Boost DateTime library for operations on dates (time is unnecessary)?

Does Boost date not satisfy your requirements?

Approach your problem from the right end and begin with the answers. Then one day, perhaps you will find the final question..

Is C++ fast enough?I have use Boost date a bit, and it did what I wanted at the time.But you have some precise issues with this library?

I thought it was a pun, and so I reciprocated (I'm using C++11 and up) :-)Like I said, my issue is speed. Date calculations are not a significant part of the program logic, but they take a large fraction of the total execution time, hence my candidate for optimisation...
