You may want to spend a little more time
with basic PHP tutorials, see:
To answer your question, the problem is
with variable/string use, not any PHP
functions. $blah in particular.
Use quotes around strings:
$blah = '2002-05-02';
Read about strings:
As you are basically doing this:
$blah = 2002 - 5 - 2; // 1995
Anyway, also consider:
Although the behavoir of strtotime(1995) does seem
a little odd, in later versions of PHP it does try
to do something but not sure exactly what ... yet.
I'm assuming it returns -1 for you, in PHP3.
