Date range in PHP

array_map

Date and time values are very essential in PHP as there are different time formats, time zones, daylight saving offsets.

By carefully with the date inputs you can format output however you like.

In the below function you can get range of dates:

function date_range( $start, $end, $step = '+1 day', $format = 'Y/m/d' )
{
$dates = array();
$current = strtotime( $start );
$end = strtotime( $end );
while( $current <= $end ) {
$dates[] = date( $format, $current );
$current = strtotime( $step, $current );
}
return $dates;
}
print_r( date_range( '2010/07/26', '2010/08/05') );
