Be warned, DateTime::setDate() does not check for invalid input.

Illustration:
<?php
$dt
= new DateTime();
$dt->setDate(2012, 11, 31); // returns DateTime object and not false although this date does not exist
echo $dt->format('Y-m-d'); // output: 2012-12-01
?>

No error was generated on entering a non existing date, php silently changed it.

Be carreful about this bug in php 5.6 and lower (fixed in php 7.0 and higher) :

<?php
$date
= new DateTime("first day of last month");
echo
$date->format('Y-m-d');
echo 
' => ' ;
$date->setDate(2013, 2, 3);
echo
$date->format('Y-m-d');
?>

Output <=5.6 : 2017-03-01 => 2013-02-01
Output >=7.0 : 2017-03-31 => 2013-02-03

Same goes for "Last day of last month", and the funny part, it will take the last day of the new month setted by setDate

Example with a Leap Year :
<?php
$date
= new DateTime("last day of last month");
echo
$date->format('Y-m-d');
echo 
' => ' ;
$date->setDate(2012, 2, 3);
echo
$date->format('Y-m-d');
?>

Output <=5.6 : 2017-03-31 => 2012-02-29
Output >=7.0 : 2017-03-31 => 2012-02-03
