<?php $timestamp = time(); $oldtimestamp = mktime(5,50,23,4,30,2005); //5:50.23 on April 30, 3005 $difference = $timestamp - $oldtimestamp; $getdate = getdate($difference); print "The date is "; print date("M-D-Y"); print "<br />"; print "The time is "; print date("g:i"); print "<br /><br />";
print "<br /><br />"; print "This makes a timestamp of $timestamp"; print "<br />"; print "We will also be using the timestamp $oldtimestamp.<br />"; print "The difference is $difference"; print "<br />"; print "If you format that, it comes out as a "; print $getdate[hours]; print " hour difference."; //This does not tell the difference in time, just the difference in the hour of the day. print "<br />";
//Whats left undone... //I need to find a way to calculate the time elapsed between two timeestamps, and execute an action when that time exceeds another time. I also need to find a way to add time to it. For instance, I want to stop displaying something a month from now, but if somone submits a form, it will stop displaying two months from now. ?>
So, anyway, as you can see I have been toying around with time lately... How do I do what is commented at the bottem? One thing I neglected to add was that I need a way to do it in real time.
