12. If you have to work with dates in the following format: “Tuesday, February 14, 2006 @ 10:39 am”, how can you convert them to another format, that is easier to use?
The strtotime function can convert a string to a timestamp. A timestamp can be converted to date format. So it is best to store the dates as timestamp in the database, and just output them in the format you like.
So let’s say we have
$date = “Tuesday, February 14, 2006 @ 10:39 am”;
In order to convert that to a timestamp, we need to get rid of the “@” sign, and we can use the remaining string as a parameter for the strtotime function.
So we have
$date = str_replace(“@ “,””,$date);
$date = strtotime($date);
now $date is a timestamp
and we can say:
echo date(“d M Y”,$date);

get_browser() attempts to determine the capabilities of the user’s browser. This is done by looking up the browser’s information in the browscap.ini file.

foreach ($browser as $name => $value) {
echo “$name $value

For this we can use the session objec($_SESSION)t. When the user login with his/ her user name and password, usually we check those to ensure for correctness. If that user name and password are valid one then we can store that user name in a session and then we can very that session variable has been set or not in a single files and we can include that file in all pages.
15. How i can get ip address?
We can use SERVER var $_SERVER[‘SERVER_ADDR’] and getenv(“REMOTE_ADDR”) functions to get the IP address.
