Well, I've done this a bit in other languages that had date fields.
I would build a date MM/01/YY by taking the current month and current
and making the day 01.  Then subtract one day.  And it would be the last
day of
the previous month.

I am not sure if we can do date math (haven't played around with date
all that much yet) but if you can, this should work fine.
