Is today the last day of the month?

[ `date --date='next day' +'%B'` == `date +'%B'` ] || echo 'end of month' && echo 'not end of month'
Nice simple example of something we can do in bash.

What Others Think

The option "--date" doesn't work for me (Mac OS X). Hopefully using "-v+1d" works fine for getting the next day.

Some of the best casinos are not always what you might expect.
