```My mistake,

I thought it was date() now strftime()
Sorry```

functions???☺ )

Jason,

%M is also month:

Month --- ---
F A full textual representation of a month, such as January or March January
through December
m Numeric representation of a month, with leading zeros 01 through 12
M A short textual representation of a month, three letters Jan through Dec
n Numeric representation of a month, without leading zeros 1 through 12
t Number of days in the given month 28 through 31

Time --- ---
i Minutes with leading zeros 00 to 59

Hi,

That's because %m is month, what you need is %M for minute (note uppercase).

Check out http://php.net/strftime

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(\$time);
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

date_default_timezone_set('Europe/Berlin');
