Subject: [PHP] Time Problem: always ten past xx

Hey everybody,

I've got a strange problem. Using PHP5.3 on my MacBook.

There is a script, which handles input from user, in this case a date
and time.

So I get for example "10:30" and "06.10.2009". Standard german time
format. Now I try to get the correct timestamp:

$time = strtotime("06.10.2009 10:30");
var_dump(strftime("%d.%m.%Y %H:%m",$time));

But the result is as

int 1254817800
string '06.10.2009 10:10' (length=16)

The minutes are always "10", no matter what time I get.

Anyone a clue?

Thanks, Mattes

P.S.: default timezone is set to
