PHP Manual


strptime

(PHP 5 >= 5.1.0)

strptime Parse a time/date generated with strftime()

Description

array strptime ( string $date , string $format )

strptime() returns an array with the date parsed, or FALSE on error.

Month and weekday names and other language dependent strings respect the current locale set with setlocale() (LC_TIME).

Parameters

date (string)

The string to parse (e.g. returned from strftime()).

format (string)

The format used in date (e.g. the same as used in strftime()). Note that some of the format options available to strftime() may not have any effect within strptime(); the exact subset that are supported will vary based on the operating system and C library in use.

For more information about the format options, read the strftime() page.

Return Values

Returns an array or FALSE on failure.

The following parameters are returned in the array
parameters Description
"tm_sec" Seconds after the minute (0-61)
"tm_min" Minutes after the hour (0-59)
"tm_hour" Hour since midnight (0-23)
"tm_mday" Day of the month (1-31)
"tm_mon" Months since January (0-11)
"tm_year" Years since 1900
"tm_wday" Days since Sunday (0-6)
"tm_yday" Days since January 1 (0-365)
"unparsed" the date part which was not recognized using the specified format

Examples

Example #1 strptime() example

<?php
$format 
'%d/%m/%Y %H:%M:%S';
$strf strftime($format);

echo 
"$strf\n";

print_r(strptime($strf$format));
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

03/10/2004 15:54:19

Array
(
    [tm_sec] => 19
    [tm_min] => 54
    [tm_hour] => 15
    [tm_mday] => 3
    [tm_mon] => 9
    [tm_year] => 104
    [tm_wday] => 0
    [tm_yday] => 276
    [unparsed] =>
)

Notes

Note: This function is not implemented on Windows platforms.

Note:

Internally, this function calls the strptime() function provided by the system's C library. This function can exhibit noticeably different behaviour across different operating systems. The use of date_parse_from_format(), which does not suffer from these issues, is recommended on PHP 5.3.0 and later.

Note:

"tm_sec" includes any leap seconds (currently upto 2 a year). For more information on leap seconds, see the » Wikipedia article on leap seconds.

Note:

Prior to PHP 5.2.0, this function could return undefined behaviour. Notably, the "tm_sec", "tm_min" and "tm_hour" entries would return undefined values.
