echo 
'First Formatted output with pattern is ' datefmt_format($fmt0);
datefmt_set_pattern($fmt'yyyymmdd hh:mm:ss z');
echo 
'Now pattern of the formatter is : ' datefmt_get_pattern($fmt);
echo 
'Second Formatted output with pattern is ' datefmt_format($fmt0);

?>

Example #2 OO example

<?php
$fmt 
= new IntlDateFormatter(
    
'en_US',
    
IntlDateFormatter::FULL,IntlDateFormatter::FULL,
    
'America/Los_Angeles',
    
IntlDateFormatter::GREGORIAN,
    
'MM/dd/yyyy'
);
echo 
'pattern of the formatter is : ' $fmt->getPattern();
echo 
'First Formatted output is ' $fmt->format(0);
$fmt->setPattern('yyyymmdd hh:mm:ss z');
echo 
'Now pattern of the formatter is : ' $fmt->getPattern();
echo 
'Second Formatted output is ' $fmt->format(0);

?>

The above example will output:

pattern of the formatter is : MM/dd/yyyy
First Formatted output with pattern is 12/31/1969
Now pattern of the formatter is : yyyymmdd hh:mm:ss z
Second Formatted output with pattern is 19690031 04:00:00 PST
