I have a new love affair… PHP’s DateTime object. I’m not sure when it started, but it’s going on strong now. If you haven’t taken a look at it, I invite you to run over there now and just look at the methods. If that isn’t enough, let me give you a bit of example code… see if this makes you really want to do it:
$firstDate = new DateTime('01/12/2012 10:00:00'); $secondDate = new DateTime('2012-01-01 23:23:23'); echo $firstDate > $secondDate ? "First Date is Newer" : "Second date is newer";
What do you think the output will be? How EASY is that?!
