I'm still learning PHP. And I figured out how to do this to a point... but I think there is a better way.
And I'm in a big hurry, so lots of points for what is somewhat simple.
I'm storing my dates in the format YYYYMMDD.
There is a variable that is set by the client.
I need to have PHP pull that date and convert it to:
Mar 6 1980 if a variable is set one way... or
3 6 1980 if it's set another... or
03 06 1980 if it's set the other way.
