Phpr_DateTime

Phpr_DateTime is a class used to represent date and time values. Normally you won’t need to create instances of this class manually. Most model object fields are already instances of Phpr_DateTime class, for example the $created_at field of the User class. The class has methods for returning formatted date and time values as string.

The date/time values are stored in the database using GMT time zone. When a date/time value is fetched from the database, it converts it to the time zone specified in the TIMEZONE parameter specified in your config.php file.
