Here's my problem, I have a timestamp value in my database, and I'd like to be able to use PHP to take the value of the time stamp and turn from 19991005165611 into October 5 1999 4:56 PM (note that i don't need the seconds to be converted.) I really have no idea how to do this, If anyone has seen a routine that does this, or could write a quick one (I feel if you know how to do this it would be easy) It would be very helpful.
