  I have a need to find the last day of a month programatically (i.e. hardcoding Jan 31, etc. seems to me to be a kludge).  

  I have the month/year and can append 01 to generate the first day of the next month thusly:  

  ADD_MONTHS('2002-01-01',1)...... results in 2002-02-0 1.  

  Now, I want to subtract 1 day from that date and come up with 2002-01-31. How do I do that?  

ADD_MONTHS('2002-01-01',1) -1

or for any date:

add_months(calendar_date, 1)
- extract(day from add_months(calendar_date, 1));
