PHP Manual [The DateTimeInterface interface]

PHP Manual || Date/Time

(PHP 5 >= 5.5.0, PHP 7)

DateTimeInterface is meant so that both DateTime and DateTimeImmutable can be type hinted for. It is not possible to implement this interface with userland classes.

DateTimeInterface {
/* Constants */
const string ATOM = "Y-m-d\TH:i:sP" ;
const string COOKIE = "l, d-M-Y H:i:s T" ;
const string ISO8601 = "Y-m-d\TH:i:sO" ;
const string RFC822 = "D, d M y H:i:s O" ;
const string RFC850 = "l, d-M-y H:i:s T" ;
const string RFC1036 = "D, d M y H:i:s O" ;
const string RFC1123 = "D, d M Y H:i:s O" ;
const string RFC7231 = "D, d M Y H:i:s \G\M\T" ;
const string RFC2822 = "D, d M Y H:i:s O" ;
const string RFC3339 = "Y-m-d\TH:i:sP" ;
const string RFC3339_EXTENDED = "Y-m-d\TH:i:s.vP" ;
const string RSS = "D, d M Y H:i:s O" ;
const string W3C = "Y-m-d\TH:i:sP" ;
/* Methods */
public diff ( DateTimeInterface $targetObject [, bool $absolute = FALSE ] ) : DateInterval
public format ( string $format ) : string
public getOffset ( void ) : int
public getTimestamp ( void ) : int
public getTimezone ( void ) : DateTimeZone
public __wakeup ( void )
}
DateTimeInterface::ATOM
DATE_ATOM
Atom (example: 2005-08-15T15:52:01+00:00)

5.5.8 Trying to implement DateTimeInterface raises a fatal error now. Formerly implementing the interface didn't raise an error, but the behavior was erroneous.
