Description: ------------ Hi, I really love this package but I found a very strange behavior when passing a not existing timestamp like f.ex. 20060132T163315 (month is 32) to the Date constructor. Surely this makes no sense but it's so easy to set a correct date (like mktime does). You can see the test script beyond these lines. I found nothing in one of the 88 reports matching this topic. Now decide yourselves if this is a bug report or feature request ;) I wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year! Continue your great work. Yours, Seb Test script: --------------- $timestamp = "20060132T163315"; $d = new Date($timestamp); echo $d->getDate(DATE_FORMAT_ISO_BASIC); //I solved this by using: $timestamp = "20060132T163315"; $d = new Date($timestamp); $d->addSpan(new Date_Span("0,0,0,0")); echo $d->getDate(DATE_FORMAT_ISO_BASIC); Expected result: ---------------- 2006-02-01 16:33:15 Actual result: -------------- 2006-01-32 16:33:15

Yep, you are right. Since setDate() allowed any timestamp, not only date, but also time too. Currently, we are working at 1.5.x branch, Date would be more strict/smart also faster. Hope will finish it soon. You too, have a great holiday. Thanks :)
