    Question help with converting string ..

    Hi im a php newbie

    i have this code

    PHP Code:
    <?
    $noic 
    "811009-xx-xxxx";
    $ex explode('-',$noic);
    $sp str_split($ex[0]);

    $year $sp[0].$sp[1];
    $month $sp[2].$sp[3];
    $day $sp[4].$sp[5];

    echo 
    $day.'-'.$month.'-'.$year;

    ?>

    it will change noic = 811009-xx-xxxx to date 09-10-81

    Note that if you use a more standard date format, you can use the DateTime class, which is designed for exactly this task.
