By Joe Fallon

Joe's PHP Time Utilities is a set of classes useful for assisting with working with time related values in PHP and MySQL. It is important to note that this is not an all inclusive date and time solution. Currently, it provides the following capabilities:

  1. A millisecond resolution chronograph is provided to easily measure the elapsed time between two events.
  2. A class containing a collection of constants representing every day of the week is provided.
  3. A class containing a collection of constants representing every month of the year is provided.
  4. A class containing a method for getting a time stamp that is suitable for immediate insertion into MySQL (i.e. Y-m-d H:i:s) is provided.

Installation

The easiest way to install Joe's PHP Time Utilities is with Composer. Create the following composer.json file and run the php composer.phar install command to install it.

{
    "require": {
        "joefallon/phptime": "*"
    }
}

Class Documentation

Chronograph

Here is an example of using Chronograph to measure the time elapsed in milliSeconds between a start time and stop time:

use JoeFallon\TimeUtil\Chronograph;

$chrono = new Chronograph();
$chrono->start();   // start the chronograph

// Perform other work.

$chrono->stop();    // stop the chronograph
$ms = $chrono->getElapsedTimeInMillisecs();

Here is an example of using Chronograph to measure the time elapsed in seconds between a start time and stop time:

use JoeFallon\TimeUtil\Chronograph;

$chrono = new Chronograph();
$chrono->start();   // start the chronograph

// Perform other work.

$chrono->stop();    // stop the chronograph
$secs = $chrono->getElapsedTimeInSeconds();
