Description

This function will return true if the year component of the given datetime value is a leap year or false otherwise. This can be a handy function for things like Easter Eggs in your games, or for unlocking special content.


Example:

if date_leap_year(date_current_datetime())
   {
   if !global.ExtraContent
      {
      global.ExtraContent = true;
      }
   }

The above code will check the current datetime to see if the year is a leap year or not. If it is it sets a global variable.
