date(yearNum, monthNum, dayNum[, hourNum, minNum])

constructs a Date from individual numeric elements. This is useful, for example, if you need to assemble a date from separate attributes.

year is the 4-digit year

month is a number from 1–12

day is a number from 1 to 31

The time arguments are optional, and are specified in a 24-hour clock.

hour is a number from 0 to 23

minute is a number from 0 to 59

Using this operator, do not quote the whole argument list: these should be left as individual numbers.

Wrong: $MyDate = date("2004,7,23,16,45"); 

Right: $MyDate = date(2004,7,23,16,45); 

Examples:

$MyDate = date(2004,7,23,16,45); …sets 23 July 2004 16:45
