You have a simpler problem. yyyy-mm-dd is the ISO format, and one of the reasons it is a great format is, you can sort it any way you like, and it just works. So the simplest way to do it is to compare strings in alphabetic order: if($a<$b) echo "$a earlier than $b\n"; else echo "$b earlier than $a\n"; Cheers, Jean-Marc Libs -- Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day.
