there’s probably something wrong with your input. a hardcoded test did output the correct day of the week.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. echo date("r", mktime(1,0,0,1,4,2010));
  2. // Mon, 04 Jan 2010 01:00:00 +0100
besides date("l") only returns the weekday, not the whole date.

$d = explode('-', $row['date']);

echo date("l",mktime (0,0,0,$d[1],$d[2],$d[0]));
My code is this, or tell me how to display my date in this format

[Monday, 4th January, 2010]

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. strtotime($row["date"]);

a list of output options is listed at the date() manual.

Hi all, I am having a problem with calculating a date. What I am looking to do is get the date of Sunday of this week, then use mktime() to find out other days in the past by subtracting days. In the code below, today is Saturday, October 16, 2004, this week's Sunday is 2004-10-17. I successfully get that. But, when I try to subtract 7 days using mktime(), I instead of getting

Hi all, Appreciate if someone can help me out on this. Currently, I have a tm structure holding information of the UTC time, which is very likely to be in the past, meaning not the current time. So, let's say I'm in CST(-6) now, and I want to know the equivalent local time of that tm structure, how do I do that taking into consideration daylight savings adjustments?

I created a function that breaks down a date into broken down time, I subtract a certain number of seconds from that, then use mktime() to recompute the calendar time. It works basically except every so often, I get the date 060207 (Feb 7, 2006) which is obviously not correct. When it does this it always gives me this date. I tracked it down to my mktime() call, when I get to a certain date, mktime returns a number in 4000000000,...
