Bug #44209 strtotime doesn't support 64 bit timestamps
Submitted: 2008-02-22 09:00 UTC Modified: 2008-02-22 10:20 UTC
From: bishillo at gmail dot com Assigned: derick
Status: Closed Package: Date/time related
PHP Version: 5.2CVS-2008-02-22 (snap) OS: linux 64 bit
Private report: No CVE-ID:
 [2008-02-22 09:00 UTC] bishillo at gmail dot com
strtotime() of years >2038 or <1900 does not work on 64 bit platforms, that should not have problems with those dates. The rest of php functions work properly with those extended dates.

Reproduce code:
On 64 bit platforms php date functions support greater range of dates. For exampe:

<?= date('d-m-Y',time()+31536000000) ?>

But strtotime does not work with those improved date ranges:

<?= date('Y-m-d',strtotime('3007-06-25')) ?>

I understand that output on 32 bit platforms, but on 64 bit should work as the rest of functions, and return a valid 64bit timestamp for dates >2038 or <1900.
