PHP gmstrftime

PHP original manual for gmstrftime [ show | php.net ]


(PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7)

gmstrftimeFormat a GMT/UTC time/date according to locale settings


string gmstrftime ( string $format [, int $timestamp = time() ] )

Behaves the same as strftime() except that the time returned is Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). For example, when run in Eastern Standard Time (GMT -0500), the first line below prints "Dec 31 1998 20:00:00", while the second prints "Jan 01 1999 01:00:00".



See description in strftime().


The optional timestamp parameter is an integer Unix timestamp that defaults to the current local time if a timestamp is not given. In other words, it defaults to the value of time().

Return Values

Returns a string formatted according to the given format string using the given timestamp or the current local time if no timestamp is given. Month and weekday names and other language dependent strings respect the current locale set with setlocale().


Example #1 gmstrftime() example

strftime("%b %d %Y %H:%M:%S"mktime(2000123198)) . "\n";
gmstrftime("%b %d %Y %H:%M:%S"mktime(2000123198)) . "\n";
