Interesting. wxRuby itself doesn’t do anything to alter the behaviour of
Float#to_s. The wxRuby library doesn’t change or extend any of Ruby’s
standard classes; we consider that bad behaviour for a library.
What’s happening is that wxWidgets somewhere is calling the C setlocale
function - I can’t quite pin it down in the Wx source at the moment.
This affects the way that the C sprintf (and also strftime) functions
work. Ruby calls these under the hood to implement methods like
Float#to_s and DateTime#strftime.
I see something similar to you. In my locale (en_GB) our standard way of
writing dates is DD/MM/YY (today is 24/08/2008), whereas in the US,
people write months MM/DD/YY (today would be 08/24/2008). When I change
wxRuby’s locale to be en_GB, it also affects the way that Ruby methods
like Time.now.strftime(’%x’) work.
How can I change it back to the original form ?
The easiest way is probably to explicitly switch to en_US locale in the
startup of your wxRuby application:
See the documentation
Examples of using Wx::Locale can be found in one of the tests:
