Date Format in PHP for date month year and time

Date Today in PHP
We can apply date format on date objects returned by or created from DateTime function or any other way . Here are some example of displaying date and time by using format.
$date = new DateTime('2012-04-15 22:15:40');
echo $date->format('Y/m/d H:i:s');
The output is here
2012/04/15 22:15:40
echo date('t'); //will return number of days in current month
echo date('Y'); //will return Year in four digits: 2013
