Getting first and last day of the month

Saturday, 31st March 2007 11:30pm
Earlier today I was working on this form with two textboxes which had to initially show the first and last day of the current month respectively.

So I wanted a compact way of doing this using PHP without using a function or method and show the date in format d/m/yyyy. The first day of the month is straight forward and I could have used something simple like this:

$dtFirstDay = "1/" . date("m") ."/" . date("Y") ;

This could have done it but in the end I settled for a method with similar formulations for both first day and last day and hence:

$dtFirstDay = date("j/n/Y", mktime(0, 0, 0, date("m") , date("d")-date("d")+1, date("Y")));

and for last day:

$dtLastDay = date("j/n/Y", mktime(0, 0, 0, date("m")+1 , date("d")-date("d"), date("Y")));
