Date diff ( difference)

We can get difference of two dates by using diff function. Note that this function is supported by PHP 5.3 and higher versions.

How to know PHP version ?

Here is an example of knowing the difference in two dates , the first date is taken as present date and past date is created by using date object.

<?Php
date_default_timezone_set ("Asia/Kolkata");
$date1=new DateTime("now") ;
echo $date1->format('d-m-y H:i:s');
echo "<br><br>";
$date2=new DateTime("1976-5-5");
$date= $date1->diff($date2);
echo $date->format('%y Years, %m Months, %d Days');
?>

The output is here

05-03-12 19:17:19
35 Years, 10 Months, 0 Days
