IntlDateFormatter::parse -- datefmt_parseParse string to a timestamp value

Description

Object oriented style

int IntlDateFormatter::parse ( string $value [, int &$position ] )

Procedural style

int datefmt_parse ( IntlDateFormatter $fmt , string $value [, int &$position ] )

Converts string $value to an incremental time value, starting at $parse_pos and consuming as much of the input value as possible.

Parameters

fmt

The formatter resource

value

string to convert to a time

position

Position at which to start the parsing in $value (zero-based). If no error occurs before $value is consumed, $parse_pos will contain -1 otherwise it will contain the position at which parsing ended (and the error occurred). This variable will contain the end position if the parse fails. If $parse_pos > strlen($value), the parse fails immediately.

Return Values

timestamp parsed value

Examples

Example #1 datefmt_parse() example

<?php
$fmt 
= new IntlDateFormatter"en_US" ,IntlDateFormatter::FULL,IntlDateFormatter::FULL,'America/Los_Angeles',IntlDateFormatter::GREGORIAN  );
echo 
"First parsed output is ".$fmt->parse("Wednesday, December 31, 1969 4:00:00 PM PT");
$fmt = new IntlDateFormatter"de-DE" ,IntlDateFormatter::FULL,IntlDateFormatter::FULL,'America/Los_Angeles',IntlDateFormatter::GREGORIAN  );
echo 
"Second parsed output is ".$fmt->parse("Mittwoch, 31. Dezember 1969 16:00 Uhr GMT-08:00");
?>

Example #2 OO example

<?php
$fmt 
datefmt_create"en_US" ,IntlDateFormatter::FULL,IntlDateFormatter::FULL,'America/Los_Angeles',IntlDateFormatter::GREGORIAN  );
echo 
"First parsed output is ".datefmt_parse$fmt ,  "Wednesday, December 20, 1989 4:00:00 PM PT");
$fmt datefmt_create"de-DE" ,IntlDateFormatter::FULL,IntlDateFormatter::FULL,'America/Los_Angeles',IntlDateFormatter::GREGORIAN  );
echo 
"Second parsed output is ".datefmt_parse$fmt "Mittwoch, 20. Dezember 1989 16:00 Uhr GMT-08:00");
?>

The above example will output:

First parsed output is 630201600
Second parsed output is 630201600
