The DOW value is a numeric value representing the Days Of the Week:


  1. Monday:1
  2. Tuesday:2
  3. Wednesday:3
  4. Thursday:4
  5. Friday:5
  6. Saturday:6

This is convenient for crafting simple weekly queue systems.

0 - Su 1 - M 2 - Tu 3 - W 4 - Th 5 - F 6 - Sa

Template:WEEK then becomes a building-block within the chronological structure of WikiaPerl.
