ibase_timefmtSets the format of timestamp, date and time type columns returned from queries

Description

bool ibase_timefmt ( string $format [, int $columntype = IBASE_TIMESTAMP ] )

Sets the format of timestamp, date or time type columns returned from queries.

You can set defaults for these formats with the PHP configuration directives ibase.timestampformat, ibase.dateformat and ibase.timeformat.

Note:

This function has been removed from PHP 5, use ini_set() instead.

format

Internally, the columns are formatted by c-function strftime(), so refer to its documentation regarding to the format of the string.

columntype

columntype is one of the constants IBASE_TIMESTAMP, IBASE_DATE and IBASE_TIME. If omitted, defaults to IBASE_TIMESTAMP for backwards compatibility.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

I use this code (for easy migration from PHP4 to PHP5):

/**
* Constant definitions that has been removed from PHP 5
*/
const IBASE_DATE = "ibase.dateformat";
const IBASE_TIME = "ibase.timeformat";
const IBASE_TIMESTAMP = "ibase.timestampformat";

/**
* Sets the format of timestamp, date or time type
* columns returned from queries
*/
function ibase_timefmt($format, $where = IBASE_TIMESTAMP)
{
ini_set($where, $format);
}
