=====Age Action=====

I haven't seen any actions out there that are useful for determining the age of something provided the start day, month, and year. I'm using this a temporary holding place while I clean up my code and improve some functionality.

This code doesn't quite work yet, but you can see what I'm planning on doing.

// Get the Birth/Start dates
$bYear = (int)trim($this->htmlspecialchars_ent($vars['byear']));
$bMonth = (int)trim($this->htmlspecialchars_ent($vars['bmonth']));
$bDay = (int)trim($this->htmlspecialchars_ent($vars['bday']));

// Get the Death/End Dates
$dYear = (int)trim($this->htmlspecialchars_ent($vars['dyear']));
$dMonth = (int)trim($this->htmlspecialchars_ent($vars['dmonth']));
$dDay = (int)trim($this->htmlspecialchars_ent($vars['dday']));


list($this_year, $this_month, $this_day) = explode(' ',date('Y n j'));
$age = $this_year - $bYear;

if ($bMonth>$this_month||($this_month==$bMonth&&$this_day<$bDay)) {

echo $this->ReturnSafeHTML($age);
