/usr/bin/SetFile -- set attributes of files and directories SYNOPSIS
/usr/bin/SetFile [-P] [-a attributes] [-c creator] [-d date] [-m date] [-t type] file ... DESCRIPTION
/usr/bin/SetFile is a tool to set the file attributes on files in an HFS+ directory. It attempts to be similar to the setfile command in MPW. It can apply rules to more than one file with the options applying to all files listed. Flags: -P Acts on a symlink file instead on the file the symlink resolves to. -a attributes Sets the file attributes bits where attributes is a string of case sensitive letters. Each letter corresponds to a file attribute: an uppercase letter indicates that the attribute bit is set (1), a lowercase letter indicates that it is not (0). Note: attributes not specified remain unchanged. A | a Alias file B | b Has bundle C | c Custom icon (allowed on folders) D | d Located on the desktop (allowed on folders) E | e Extension is hidden (allowed on folders) I | i Inited - Finder is aware of this file and has given it a location in a window. (allowed on folders) L | l Locked M | m Shared (can run multiple times) N | n File has no INIT resource S | s System file (name locked) T | t "Stationery Pad" file V | v Invisible (allowed on folders) Z | z Busy (allowed on folders) -c creator Specifies the file's creator, where creator can be a string of four MacRoman characters, an empty string ('') designating a null creator, or a binary, decimal, octal, or hexadecimal number in standard notation (e.g. 0x52486368). -d date Sets the creation date, where date is a string of the form: "mm/dd/[yy]yy [hh:mm:[:ss] [AM | PM]]" Notes: Enclose the string in quotation marks if it contains spaces. The date must be in the Unix epoch, that is, between 1/1/1970 and 1/18/2038. If the year is provided as a two-digit year, it is assumed to be in the 21st century and must be from 00 (2000) through 38 (2038). -m date Sets the modification date where date is a string of the form in -d above. (mm/dd/[yy]yy [hh:mm:[:ss] [AM | PM]]) -t type Sets the file type, where type can be a string of four MacRoman characters, an empty string ('') designating a null type, or a binary, decimal, octal, or hexadecimal number in standard notation (e.g. 0x55455955). RETURN VALUES

GMDATE(3)								 1								 GMDATE(3)

gmdate - Format a GMT/UTC date/time

string gmdate (string $format, [int $timestamp = time()]) DESCRIPTION
Identical to the date(3) function except that the time returned is Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). PARAMETERS
o $format - The format of the outputted date string. See the formatting options for the date(3) function. o $timestamp - The optional $timestamp parameter is an integer Unix timestamp that defaults to the current local time if a $timestamp is not given. In other words, it defaults to the value of time(3). RETURN VALUES
Returns a formatted date string. If a non-numeric value is used for $timestamp, FALSE is returned and an E_WARNING level error is emitted. CHANGELOG
+--------+---------------------------------------------------+ |Version | | | | | | | Description | | | | +--------+---------------------------------------------------+ | 5.1.0 | | | | | | | The valid range of a timestamp is typically from | | | Fri, 13 Dec 1901 20:45:54 GMT to Tue, 19 Jan 2038 | | | 03:14:07 GMT. (These are the dates that corre- | | | spond to the minimum and maximum values for a | | | 32-bit signed integer). However, before PHP 5.1.0 | | | this range was limited from 01-01-1970 to | | | 19-01-2038 on some systems (e.g. Windows). | | | | | 5.1.1 | | | | | | | There are useful constants of standard date/time | | | formats that can be used to specify the $format | | | parameter. | | | | +--------+---------------------------------------------------+ EXAMPLES
Example #1 gmdate(3) example When run in Finland (GMT +0200), the first line below prints "Jan 01 1998 00:00:00", while the second prints "Dec 31 1997 22:00:00". <?php echo date("M d Y H:i:s", mktime(0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1998)); echo gmdate("M d Y H:i:s", mktime(0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1998)); ?> SEE ALSO
