GMT is only valid for 6 months of the year. Then, due to DST, it becomes BST.

UTC is just UTC.

This is incorrect. For all practical purposes, GMT and UTC are the same. The fact that the time in Greenwich is not GMT/UTC for half the year is not relevant.


All the GM* functions (gmdate, gmstrftime, etc) are intended for dealing with Universal Co-ordinated Time.

As a side note, there is (or at least was) no gmstrtotime function. I get around this by putting " +0000" at the end of the string.
