localtime()

We can get local time with date, month year etc. ( array output ) by using localtime() function in PHP.
Here is the syntax.
localtime();
Example code
print_r(localtime());
The output of above code is here
Array
(
    [0] => 24
    [1] => 10
    [2] => 20
    [3] => 25
    [4] => 4
    [5] => 124
    [6] => 6
    [7] => 145
    [8] => 0
)
We can get better output by using is_associative to true. We will get a set of keys and associated data. Here is an example.
print_r(localtime(time(),true));
The output is here.
Array
(
    [tm_sec] => 24
    [tm_min] => 10
    [tm_hour] => 20
    [tm_mday] => 25
    [tm_mon] => 4
    [tm_year] => 124
    [tm_wday] => 6
    [tm_yday] => 145
    [tm_isdst] => 0
)
We can change the time zone set and check the return like this.
date_default_timezone_set('Asia/Kolkata');
print_r(localtime(time(),true));
The ouput is here
Array
(
    [tm_sec] => 24
    [tm_min] => 40
    [tm_hour] => 1
    [tm_mday] => 26
    [tm_mon] => 4
    [tm_year] => 124
    [tm_wday] => 0
    [tm_yday] => 146
    [tm_isdst] => 0
)
