adodb_date()

Syntax
string adodb_date2(
     string $format,
     optional string $isoDateString = ''
)

Description

This function extends the adodb_date() function, allowing the second argument to be passed as an ISO format string instead of a timestamp. This makes it easier to generate formatted times outside of the normal unix timestamp range.


Usage

$d = adodb_date2('d-M-Y H:i','1520-12-25 13:01:34');

Note

To make the calculation work correctly for early years, it is important to use 4 digit years for the $isoDateString


/*
* Correct usage
*/
$date = adodb_date('m/d/Y', '0900-12-31 13:01:34')
/*
* Returns 12/25/900
*/
 
/*
* Incorrect usage
*/
$date = adodb_date('m/d/Y', '900-12-31 13:01:34')
/*
* Returns 12/03/2015 (todays date)
*/
