Representing distant past/future datetimes...

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I'm currently working on a PHP/MySQL app that needs to be able to handle arbitrary dates, possibly WAY in the past or future - beyond the 1901-2038 of 32-bit unix time and the 1901-2155 of MySQL.

I know that I can store the dates as strings and solve my problem that way, but then I miss out on the existing datetime functions.

Does anyone know of a workaround to this, e.g. forcing PHP to use 64-bit timestamps?, etc.  Or am I stuck with storing as strings?

Thanks.
