ibase_timefmt — Set the format of timestamp, date and time columns returned from queries


boolean ibase_timefmt(format[, type]);
string format:
int type (optional): Data type to which format applies


TRUE, or FALSE if not supported on your platform


Sets the format of timestamp, date and time columns by calling standard ANSI C function strftime() with the given format and data returned from the database. See strftime() for an explanation of the format string. Note that your current locale settings have an effect on the result.

Possible values for type are:

  • IBASE_TIMESTAMP: apply the format to TIMESTAMP columns.

  • IBASE_DATE: apply the format to DATE columns.

  • IBASE_TIME: apply the format to TIME columns.

If omitted, defaults to IBASE_TIMESTAMP. You can also set defaults for these formats using PHP configuration directivesibase.timestampformat,ibase.dateformatand ibase.timeformat.
