PHP Calendar Functions

The calendar extension presents a series of functions to simplify converting between different calendar formats.

The intermediary or standard it is based on is the Julian Day Count. The Julian Day Count is a count of days starting from January 1st, 4713 B.C. To convert between calendar systems, you must first convert to Julian Day Count, then to the calendar system of your choice.

Installation:

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