$curYear = date('Y');
          for ($k = $curYear; $k >= 2011; $k--)

          for ($i = 12; $i >= 1; $i--)

$monthName = date("F", mktime(0, 0, 0, $i, 10));

Open in new window


what i want to modify in this code is

like if year = 2012 i will start from 2012 and the current month ...and decrement the month till January..



and if year less than curr year like 2011 fetch all month..


let say we are in year 2013 so the output is
2013 from month 12 to 1
and 2012 from month 12 to 1
and 2011 from month 12 to 1

i want to modify it to be like
2013 from current  month  to 1
and 2012 from month 12 to 1
and 2011 from month 12 to 1

well to get months this year to today:

<?php 
$thisYear = range(1,date("n"));
foreach ($thisYear as $month){
print date("F",mktime(0,0,0,$month,10));
}

//previous years :

$thisYear = range(1,12); //then just add years

Here is how I might do it.
<?php // RAY_temp_afifosh.php
error_reporting(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors', TRUE);
date_default_timezone_set('America/Chicago');
echo '<pre>';

/* PROBLEM DEFINITION
i want to modify it to be like
2013 from current  month  to 1
and 2012 from month 12 to 1
and 2011 from month 12 to 1
*/

// A DATE IN 2013
$start = '2013-04-15';

// A DATE TO STOP GENERATING DATA
$stop  = '2011-01-01';

// A LOOP TO SHOW THE DATES
while ($start >= $stop)
{
    $start = date('Y-m-01', strtotime($start));
    echo PHP_EOL . $start;
    $start = date('Y-m-01', strtotime($start . ' - 1 MONTH'));
}

Open in new window

Best to all, ~Ray
