User phil_adler 2016-02-10 19:36:20

My calculator will output the total number of days between to dates. How can I take that number and convert it to years months days for example 366 days would out put 1 year 0 months 1 day

Hi,
in fact there is no an exact solution to that problem, because not every year has same number of days and also months have different number of days, but you can get an approximation. Here you can find the code to get that solution:

Hi,
yes, sorry, it's not a calculation that you can't do in php, is a calculation that you can't do in real life either...
