gmdate -- format a GMT/CUT date/time


string gmdate(string format, int timestamp);

Identical to the date() function except that the time returned is Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). For example, when run in Finland (GMT +0200), the first line below prints "Jan 01 1998 00:00:00", while the second prints "Dec 31 1997 22:00:00".

Example 1. gmdate() example

echo date( "M d Y H:i:s",mktime(0,0,0,1,1,1998) );
echo gmdate( "M d Y H:i:s",mktime(0,0,0,1,1,1998) );
