This template returns the number of full years elapsed from one date until another date or until today (UTC).

Usage

To dynamically calculate the current age each time the page is loaded, use {{age|YYYY|MM|DD}}, substituting the date of birth for the letters YYYY MM DD.

To calculate the age at a certain date (eg at death), rather than the current age, use {{age|YYYY|MM|DD|YYYY|MM|DD}}, with the date of birth as the first date and the date at which the age should be calculated (eg date of death) as the second.

Examples

Tim Berners-Lee was born 60 years ago.
Past age
[[Winston Churchill]] died at the age of {{age|1874|11|30|1965|01|24}}.
