How Get Number of Days in a Month in PHP

Extracted from

function days_in_month($month, $year)  { 
return $month == 2 ? 
($year % 4 ? 28 : ($year % 100 ? 29 : ($year % 400 ? 28 : 29))) : 
(($month - 1) % 7 % 2 ? 30 : 31); 

echo days_in_month(YOUR_MONTH,YOUR_YEAR);

More Simple way by a SafFunction

function days_in_month($month,$year) {
return date('t',mktime(0,0,0,$month,1,$year));

echo days_in_month(YOUR_MONTH,YOUR_YEAR);

SafSendMailV2: A function to send mail using php

I started to make and collect my own function since 2001 and SafSendMail I made it in 2002 for a project where there was lots of mail sending option. If I want to send a mail I have to write whole lot and I didn't like it. Created SafSendMail so that I can send mail as I want using a single line.

Later I made SafSendMailV2 supporting HTML and other stuff as you can see, if any mail sent using V2 it will also record From-IP & From-File. Using this you can Identify different things.

function SafSendMailV2(
 if ($MYHTML==true) {
  $MYHEADERS .= "MIME-Version: 1.0\r\n";
  $MYHEADERS .= "Content-Type: text/html; charset=windows-1256\r\n";
  $MYHEADERS .= "Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64\r\n";
  $MYHEADERS .= "From-IP: $REMOTE_ADDR\r\n";
  $MYHEADERS .= "From-File: $PHP_SELF\r\n";
  $MYHEADERS .= chunk_split(base64_encode("$MYBODY"));
  $MYHEADERS .= "From-IP: $REMOTE_ADDR\r\n";
  $MYHEADERS .= "From-File: $PHP_SELF";

How to use?
SafSendMailV2("","Recipiente Name","Your Name","Your Email","Subject",$MYBODY,true,$REMOTE_ADDR,$PHP_SELF)

ColdFusion like UUID in PHP

Originally extracted from with minor changes

The main function of an UUID is being unique. UUIDs are commonly use in databases to store a unique string, but not limited to. This function will help you to create a Coldfusion like Universally Unique Identifier (UUID) in PHP. This was customized for ColdFusion UUID format (8-4-4-16) .

UUID is a mix of 0-9 A-F Hex value.

function GenerateUUID() {
return sprintf('%04x%04x-%04x-%04x-%04x%04x%04x%04x',
  // 32 bits for "time_low"
 mt_rand(0, 0xffff), mt_rand(0, 0xffff),
  // 16 bits for "time_mid"
 mt_rand(0, 0xffff),
  // 16 bits for "time_hi_and_version",
  // four most significant bits holds version number 4
  mt_rand(0, 0x0fff) | 0x4000,
  // 16 bits, 8 bits for "clk_seq_hi_res",
  // 8 bits for "clk_seq_low",
  // two most significant bits holds zero and 
         // one for variant DCE1.1
  mt_rand(0, 0x3fff) | 0x8000,
  // 48 bits for "node"
  mt_rand(0, 0xffff), mt_rand(0, 0xffff), mt_rand(0, 0xffff)

PHP Date Functions with SafDate Functions

This is a set of small functions I use, this will make my life easy, no need to remember all the variables at date() function and you can make some predefined functions that you use always.

//Pass 2007-01-22 as date and output  as January 22, 2007
function SafDate1V2($date){
    list($y,$m,$d) = explode("-",$date);
    $mycooldate = date("F d, Y",mktime(0, 0, 0, $m, $d, $y));
    return $mycooldate;
//Pass 2007-01-22 as date and output  as Jan 22, 2007
function SafDate2V2($date){
    list($y,$m,$d) = explode("-",$date);
    $mycooldate = date("M d, Y",mktime(0, 0, 0, $m, $d, $y));
    return $mycooldate;

//Pass 2007-01-22 as date and output  as Jan 22, 07
function SafDate3V2($date){
    list($y,$m,$d) = explode("-",$date);
    $mycooldate = date("M d, y",mktime(0, 0, 0, $m, $d, $y));
    return $mycooldate;
//Pass 2007-01-22 as date and output as Sunday Jan 22, 2007
function SafDate4V2($date){
    list($y,$m,$d) = explode("-",$date);
    $mycooldate = date("l M d, Y",mktime(0, 0, 0, $m, $d, $y));
    return $mycooldate;
//Pass 2007-01-22 as date and output as Sun, Jan 22, 2007
function SafDate5V2($date){
    list($y,$m,$d) = explode("-",$date);
    $mycooldate = @date("D, M d, Y",mktime(0, 0, 0, $m, $d, $y));
    return $mycooldate;
