localtime

Get the local time (PHP 4, PHP 5)
array localtime ( [int timestamp [, bool is_associative]] )

The localtime() function returns an array identical to that of the structure returned by the C function call.

Parameters

timestamp

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().

is_associative

If set to FALSE or not supplied than the array is returned as a regular, numerically indexed array. If the argument is set to TRUE then localtime() is an associative array containing all the different elements of the structure returned by the C function call to localtime. The names of the different keys of the associative array are as follows:

  • "tm_sec" - seconds
  • "tm_min" - minutes
  • "tm_hour" - hour
  • "tm_mday" - day of the month

    Months are from 0 (Jan) to 11 (Dec) and days of the week are from 0 (Sun) to 6 (Sat).

  • "tm_mon" - month of the year, starting with 0 for January
  • "tm_year" - Years since 1900
  • "tm_wday" - Day of the week
  • "tm_yday" - Day of the year
  • "tm_isdst" - Is daylight savings time in effect

Errors/Exceptions

Every call to a date/time function will generate a E_NOTICE if the time zone is not valid, and/or a E_STRICT message if using the system settings or the TZ environment variable. See also date_default_timezone_set()

ChangeLog

VersionDescription
5.1.0

Now issues the E_STRICT and E_NOTICE time zone errors.

Examples

Example 455. localtime() example

<?php
$localtime
= localtime();
$localtime_assoc = localtime(time(), true);
print_r($localtime);
print_r($localtime_assoc);
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

Array
(
   [0] => 24
   [1] => 3
   [2] => 19
   [3] => 3
   [4] => 3
   [5] => 105
   [6] => 0
   [7] => 92
   [8] => 1
)

Array
(
   [tm_sec] => 24
   [tm_min] => 3
   [tm_hour] => 19
   [tm_mday] => 3
   [tm_mon] => 3
   [tm_year] => 105
   [tm_wday] => 0
   [tm_yday] => 92
   [tm_isdst] => 1
)
