Operator Scope of Action:
Operator First Added:
constructs a Date from individual numeric elements. This is useful, for example, if you need to assemble a date from separate attributes.
year is the 4-digit year
month is a number from 1–12
day is a number from 1 to 31
The time arguments are optional, and are specified in a 24-hour clock.
hour is a number from 0 to 23
minute is a number from 0 to 59
Using this operator, do not quote the whole argument list: these should be left as individual numbers.
$MyDate = date("2004,7,23,16,45");
$MyDate = date(2004,7,23,16,45);
date(2004,7,23,16,45) …is 23 July 2004 16:45
