Long time no see! Anyway, I'm having an issue with strtotime(). Why do the
following return valid timestamps?
echo strtotime ('a').': '.date (m/d/Y, strtotime ('a')).br/;
echo strtotime ('a,a').': '.date (m/d/Y, strtotime ('a,a')).br/;
echo strtotime ('a,a,a').': '.date (m/d/Y, strtotime ('a,a,a')).br/;
These result in today's date:
Each time the page is reloaded, the seconds jump up... but still today's
date. Why is this? I can repeat the same results by changing the 'a' to any
other single letter: g or h,k or r,s,t or whatever - all the same
This was discusses a little while ago, have a look at
and the responses.
Thanks for the link. I did a little bit more research and found a site that may
help explain what is happening.
In the column labeled Zone are all the letters of the alphabet (except J).
So, then I thought to print the times with the date() functions above - they
were various time(zones). Basically, I think strotime() is just ignoring the
characters after the first comma in the values above, so then it was finding
valid timezones. Odd.
Hope this helps someone in the future
