Description:
------------
Hi,

the "u" parameters in the date function should return milliseconds, but it always returns zeros.

Reproduce code:
---------------
date_default_timezone_set('America/Montreal');
echo date ('H:i:s:u');

Expected result:
----------------
19:50:39:123456

Actual result:
--------------
19:50:39:000000

I think someone forgot to commit the part to the ext/date/lib/ side of things when adding 'u' format as I can't see anywhere where t->f would be set to anything but 0..

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at
http://www.php.net/manual/ and the instructions on how to report
a bug at http://bugs.php.net/how-to-report.php

This is correct, it states that the timestamp is an integer, and that it defaults to the value of "time()" in the documentation. time() does not return a float with fractions of a second:

http://no.php.net/date:
Returns a string formatted according to the given format string using the given integer timestamp or the current time if no timestamp is given. In other words, timestamp  is optional and defaults to the value of time().

The problem still exists (Debian, PHP 5.2.6-1), even though the example wasn't good enough.


Reproduce code:
---------------------------
echo date('H:i:s.u', microtime(true));
echo microtime(true);


Expected:
---------------------------
20:15:44.380000
1297880144.38


Actual:
---------------------------
20:15:44.000000
1297880144.38
