Syntax

array localtime ( [int $timestamp [, bool $is_associative]] );

Definition and Usage

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

Paramters

ParameterDescription
timestampOptional. This 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

Optional. 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
  • [tm_mon] - month of the year (January=0)
  • [tm_year] - Years since 1900
  • [tm_wday] - Day of the week (Sunday=0)
  • [tm_yday] - Day of the year
  • [tm_isdst] - Is daylight savings time in effect
