You want the set of time and date parts that corresponds to a particular epoch timestamp.
Pass an epoch timestamp to getdate( ): $time_parts = getdate(163727100);.
The time parts returned by getdate( ) are detailed in Table 3-1. These time parts are in local time. If you want time parts in another time zone corresponding to a particular epoch timestamp, see Recipe 3.11.
