the current date or what? one way is:

$sDate = date('m')."-".date('d')."-".date('Y');

this will give you MM-DD.YYYY of the current date.

check this out:
http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.date.php

it gives you all of the options for getting the date.

A - "AM" or "PM"

B - Swatch Internet time

d - day of the month, 2 digits with leading zeros; i.e. "01" to "31"

D - day of the week, textual, 3 letters; i.e. "Fri"

F - month, textual, long; i.e. "January"

g - hour, 12-hour format without leading zeros; i.e. "1" to "12"

G - hour, 24-hour format without leading zeros; i.e. "0" to "23"

h - hour, 12-hour format; i.e. "01" to "12"

H - hour, 24-hour format; i.e. "00" to "23"

i - minutes; i.e. "00" to "59"

I (capital i) - "1" if Daylight Savings Time, "0" otherwise.

j - day of the month without leading zeros; i.e. "1" to "31"
