Time Functions

Example Code

Most of these functions must be called with two arguments, here designated time_t and time_zone. time_t is the number of seconds since the beginning of C.U.T. (Coordinated Universal Time) at 00:00:00 January 1, 1970. This value can be obtained from the system variables time_t and dyn_time_t (time_t is set when the script starts executing; dyn_time_t is updated at the moment that it is used; which one you use depends on what your program does).

time_zone is the number of hours before or after GMT; this value can be obtained using the built-in function timezone(). Here is an example of how a time function can be called:

Note: These functions cannot be used to process dates earlier than January 1, 1970, or later than January 19, 2038.
