Guys heres a good code i used to use.....its not my idea ....i just got it some where from the net...

It also have a variety of options hope this helps.........

```
function datediff($interval, $datefrom, $dateto, $using_timestamps = false) {
/*
$interval can be:
yyyy - Number of full years
q - Number of full quarters
m - Number of full months
y - Difference between day numbers
(eg 1st Jan 2004 is "1", the first day. 2nd Feb 2003 is "33". The datediff is "-32".)
d - Number of full days
w - Number of full weekdays
ww - Number of full weeks
h - Number of full hours
n - Number of full minutes
s - Number of full seconds (default)
*/
if (!$using_timestamps) {
$datefrom = strtotime($datefrom, 0);

```

`daysDifference`

and returns`$years`

and uses`gregoriantojd`
