i have a problem with my program that needs to add days to a certain date
For example..if i need to add 40 days to a given date..how do i do it? the following code doesn't work for me...

// current date
$date = date("Y-m-d");

$date = strtotime(date("Y-m-d", strtotime($date)) . " + 40 days");
echo "Date is: $date";

it just prints...Date is: 1277683200 on the screen. thanks in advance...

Sorry, I was really in a hurry when writing to this topic. Here's a way.

$date = date("D\m\Y");
$date = $date + 3456000;
echo $date
