Hi,
 When I am executing a php code like below:

<?php
 $timestamp=mktime(0,0,0,3,1,2011);
 echo $timestamp;
?>

on Linux and Windows system then there is always a difference of 19800 in
output. The result shown on Linux system is always 19800 less than the
value displayed on Windows system. But theoretically output on both
systems should be same because the number of seconds elapsed since
01/01/1970 to 03/01/2011 should always be same on both operating systems.
Can any one please explain the reason behind this difference.
