The easiest way would be in RPG IV, which can handle this kind of thing easily.

However if you must do it in CL, use the CVTDAT command.  Try it with the
month and year and day 31.  Monitor for message CPF0555.  If you receive
that message, try it again with day 30, then 29, then 28.  When you don't
get message CPF0555, then the date conversion was successful and so the
date was valid.
