$today = date("w"); // $today will result in '1'
$today = date("D"); // $today will result in 'Mon'
$today = date("l"); // $today will result in 'Monday'
Now if you wanted to feed the script something like this:
$string = "01 Jul 2002";
$today = date("l",strtotime($string));
This will result in the long textual day of '01 Jul 2002', so 'Monday' or if
you interchange the "l" in the first part of the date function with "w" you
will get the the day of the week, numeric, i.e. "0" (Sunday) to "6"
(Saturday) or if you use "D" you will get the short textual day so 'Mon'
I hope all of that makes sense to you. Check out the php manual for the
function date and strtotime.
