Short answer:

	Use mx.DateTime + generators


from __future__ import generators

import mx.DateTime

def date_span_gen(d1, d2):
    """Return an iterator for the dates between d1 and d2."""
    if d2 <= d1:
        raise RuntimeError("d2 (%s) must be later than d1 (%s)." % (d2, d1))
    diff = d2 - d1
    for d in range(diff.days):
        yield (d1 + mx.DateTime.RelativeDateTime(days=d))

num_days = 30
d1 =
d2 = d1 + mx.DateTime.RelativeDateTime(days=num_days)

for d in date_span_gen(d1, d2):
    print d
