Current Date

Without any arguments, constructing an instance returns an object in the default locale with the current, local date using PHP's time() function to obtain the UNIX timestamp for the object. Make sure your PHP environment has the correct default timezone.

Example 165. Creating the Current Date

= new Zend_Date();

// Output of the current timestamp
print $date;
