[thelist] public holiday/weekend dates in Perl

I need to check a load of dates, to see whether they are on a (Belgian)
public holiday, or a weekend.
I'm using Perl for this.
I think date::calc should be able to do this, but the examples I found just
print out a full calendar.
Does anyone know an example of a function that will return true if the date
I pass it is on a weekend or public holiday?

if( isHolidayOrWeekend("28/05/2003") ){
    print "28/05/2003 is a day off";
    print "28/05/2003 is a working day";

thanks for any tips,
