on windows 98 (apache module, 4.0.5):

echo date('j',86400);
// it's: 2

on Linux (apache module, 4.0.5):

echo date('j',86400);
// it's: 1 !!!

please decide whether is 1 or 2 !
(it occurs in time calculations,
when I try to find out the number
of days between two dates.. quite

I cannot change it with every new
version.. and it's quite important
in finances, acccountability etc..

Anyway, your work it's great!
And PHP it's so easy to use,
and so intuitive!

Thanx a lot!

You have just discovered daylight savings time..
I get 2 on my linux box..
So check your timezone. Definately not bug in PHP.

And date() expects a full timestamp anyway. 
This is not the way to count days between dates.
