RE: [PHP] What's with 2016-11-06




Thank you Richard for the explanation:

> DST. On both 2015-11-01 and 2016-11-06 the US switched back to standard time.

...and thank you Shiplu for the DateTime suggestion.  I used your suggestion to correct my program, but wanted to report a minor change needed in shiplu's example:

$d1->add(new DateInterval('PD1')); // generated error 'Unknown or bad format (PD1)'

$d1->add(new DateInterval('P1D')); // works

If you want to traverse days between 2 dates, just use DateTime and DateInterval classess.

$d1 = new DateTime('2016-10-30');

$d1->add(new DateInterval('PD1'));

$d1 should point to next day now.

This is a stripped-down version of a calendar program.  Can anyone explain why November 6 2016 appears twice? Or 2015-11-01?

I'm assuming the fault lies with

        $calday = $calday + (60 * 60 * 24);

...but I'd like to know why some days apparently have less than 86400 seconds and how (efficiently) to work around that.

Here is my code:

        $calday = strtotime('2016-10-30');
        $finish = strtotime('2016-12-01');

        while ( $calday < $finish ) {
                for ($dow = 0; $dow < 7; $dow++) {

                        // set the year, month, and day
                        $year = (int) date('Y', $calday);
                        $month = (int) date('n', $calday);
                        $day = (int) date('j', $calday);

                        echo "Year: $year, Month: $month, Day: $day, Day of Week: $dow <br />\n";

                        // move on to the next day
                        $calday = $calday + (60 * 60 * 24);
                }
                echo "* * *<br />\n";
        }

Thanks in advance for any help.
