I am currently working on a project where I need to validate user input for a date. I came across the PHP checkdate() function, but I am not sure how to use it correctly. Can someone provide me with an example of how to use the checkdate() function in PHP?
I want to make sure that the user enters a valid date, so I thought the checkdate() function would be useful. I understand that it checks the date to see if it is valid or not, and it returns true if the date is valid and false if it is not.
However, I am unsure about the syntax and parameters that need to be passed to the checkdate() function. Do I need to provide the day, month, and year as separate arguments, or should I pass them all together as a formatted string?
If anyone has worked with the checkdate() function and can provide me with a clear example, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you in advance for your help!
