    This module helps you classify days in fixed days cycles.

    Suppose you work three days and rest two, there is a cycle of five days, to know if you work today do something as:

    var dma = require('dma');
    // set initial date and the number of days on each cycle.
    var cycle = dma('2015-05-14', 5);
    function doWork (date) {
      return [0,1,2].indexOf(cycle(date)) !== -1;
    console.log(doWork('2015-06-20')); // => true
    console.log(doWork('2015-06-21')); // => false

    Time zones

    In node dates are always UTC, but in the browser it will depend on the locale of the client, so it is better to specify the full date in the initial field like: var cycle = dma('2015-05-14T00:00-0300', 5);. Then you can query with cycle() to get the actual (on the client locale time) congruence class.
