PHP 5 Calendar Functions


PHP Calendar Introduction

The calendar extension contains functions that simplifies converting between different calendar formats.

It is based on the Julian Day Count, which is a count of days starting from January 1st, 4713 B.C.

Note: To convert between calendar formats, you must first convert to Julian Day Count, then to the calendar of your choice.

Note: The Julian Day Count is not the same as the Julian Calendar!


Installation

For these functions to work, you have to compile PHP with --enable-calendar.

The Windows version of PHP has built-in support for this extension.
