<?php
	/**
	*Class which contains functions to build Calendar for a definite month
	*General algorithm is as following:
	*We Build the array of days of month and put 0 where there is no value and then 
	*display it in a way we want. We can simply display it, we can add news, appointments
	* and whatever you like to the every date of the month. The aim oth this class is to show
	* how to build the calendar itself, not how to display or work with it

		*If the number less than zero, we behave quite opposite - add 12 months

		* check, if it is less of equal to the maximal value of the day in this month.
		* If it is greater, we put zeroes to the week array, otherwise we put number of
		* the day
