gettimeofday

gettimeofday

(PHP 3 >= 3.0.7, PHP 4, PHP 5)

gettimeofday -- Get current time

Description

mixed gettimeofday ( [bool return_float] )

This is an interface to gettimeofday(2). It returns an associative array containing the data returned from the system call.

Since PHP 5.1.0 there is an optional parameter, return_float, which makes gettimeofday() return a float when it is set to TRUE.

Array keys:

  • "sec" - seconds since the Unix Epoch

  • "usec" - microseconds

  • "minuteswest" - minutes west of Greenwich

  • "dsttime" - type of dst correction

Example 1. gettimeofday() example

<?php
print_r
(gettimeofday());

echo
gettimeofday(true);
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

Array
(
    [sec] => 1073504408
    [usec] => 238215
    [minuteswest] => 0
    [dsttime] => 1
)

1073504408.23910
