PHP Calendar Functions

PHP Calendar Introduction

The calendar functions are useful when working with different calendar formats. The standard it is based on is the Julian day count (Julian day count is a count of days starting from January 1, 4713 B.C.). Note that the Julian day count is not the same as the Julian calendar!

Note: To convert between calendar formats, you must first convert to Julian day count, then to the calendar format.


Installation

The windows version of PHP has built-in support for the calendar extension. So, the calendar functions will work automatically.

However, if you are running the Linux version of PHP, you will have to compile PHP with --enable-calendar to get the calendar functions to work.
