PHP script to convert jquery datepicker input to unix timestamp

It was snowing and freezing so i made a litle php script that converts the input of the jquery date picker into a unix timestamp just like the php funtion strtotime.

It expects to parameters:

1) The format of the string like (mm-dd-yy) just like the webassist dialog
2) The result value of the datepicker

Now its easy to convert that value into anything you want from within your php application, if you find it usefull you can download the attached file...

but any chance you can provide instructions on how to use your file? I already have a page that contains 3 date pickers. I would like for each date picker to show the date on the screen as mm/dd/yyyy but to be inserted as yyyy-mm-dd. I currently have it on both the screen and the insert as yyyy-mm-dd.
