Examples

Example #1 A date_parse() example

<?php
print_r
(date_parse("2006-12-12 10:00:00.5"));
?>

The above example will output:

Array
(
    [year] => 2006
    [month] => 12
    [day] => 12
    [hour] => 10
    [minute] => 0
    [second] => 0
    [fraction] => 0.5
    [warning_count] => 0
    [warnings] => Array()
    [error_count] => 0
    [errors] => Array()
    [is_localtime] => 
)

Relative formats do not influence the values parsed from absolute formats, but are parsed into the "relative" element.

Example #2 date_parse() with relative formats

<?php
print_r
(date_parse("2006-12-12 10:00:00.5 +1 week +1 hour"));
?>

The above example will output:

Array
(
    [year] => 2006
    [month] => 12
    [day] => 12
    [hour] => 10
    [minute] => 0
    [second] => 0
    [fraction] => 0.5
    [warning_count] => 0
    [warnings] => Array
        (
        )

    [error_count] => 0
    [errors] => Array
        (
        )

    [is_localtime] =>
    [relative] => Array
        (
            [year] => 0
            [month] => 0
            [day] => 7
            [hour] => 1
            [minute] => 0
            [second] => 0
        )

)
