$interval = new DateInterval('P7D');
$end = new DateTime('2012-07-31');
$recurrences 4;
$iso 'R4/2012-07-01T00:00:00Z/P7D';

// All of these periods are equivalent.
$period = new DatePeriod($start$interval$recurrences);
$period = new DatePeriod($start$interval$end);
$period = new DatePeriod($iso);

// By iterating over the DatePeriod object, all of the
// recurring dates within that period are printed.
foreach ($period as $date) {
    echo 
$date->format('Y-m-d')."\n";

$period = new DatePeriod($start$interval$end,
                         
DatePeriod::EXCLUDE_START_DATE);

// By iterating over the DatePeriod object, all of the
// recurring dates within that period are printed.
// Note that, in this case, 2012-07-01 is not printed.
