gettimeofday() function in php
If you want to get the current time of the day, then here is an inbuilt function i.e. gettimeofday(). This function gives time in seconds.
Let's have a look on the function:-
gettimeofday() function gives an associative array. This function contains one parameter which is optional.
# float_value: If this parameter is set as true then the function returns a float value instead of an array.
In this associative array the returned values have their own meaning. These are:-
1. sec => Defines the seconds since the Unix Epoch
2. usec => Defines the microseconds
3. minuteswest => Defines the minutes west of Greenwich
4. dsttime => This defines the type of dst correction
<?php // Get the array from gettimeofday() print_r(gettimeofday()); ?>
<?php //Not get only float value from gettimeofday() $currenttime= gettimeofday(true); echo $currenttime; ?>
Also you can format the output after returning the time.
<?php $currenttime=gettimeofday(); echo $currenttime['sec'].$currenttime['usec']; ?>
