Topics in This Chapter
Time and Date
The functions in this section fall into three categories: time and date, alternative calendars, and configuration. The time and date functions are standard for any programming language. They allow you to get the current date in several formats. The calendar functions manipulate dates in various calendars, including ancient and obscure calendars. The configuration functions offer a way to change the configuration of PHP on a per-script basis.
