View Full Version : Date Splitting Help!

Hi all,

I have a date that looks like: Sun Aug 17 14:34:39 BST 2003 thats held in a variable named $date.

How can I split it to look like:

Aug 17 2003?

You could explode the variable into an array using a space as the separator, and then recreate a variable with the 2nd, 3rd and 6th parts of the array


$date = "Sun Aug 17 14:34:39 BST 2003";
$date_split = explode (" ", $date);

$new_date = $date_split[1]." ".$date_split[2]." ".$date_split[5];

possibly not the cleanest way to do it but a quick fix

Cheers - thats exactly what I did, but used the split function instead of explode.

Thanks very much
