Re: parsedate doesn't work on Time.now.to_s


#1

len = strftime(buf, 128, “%a %b %d %H:%M:%S %Z %Y”, &tobj->tm);
I don’t think we need to fix time_to_s, however. We need to fix
ParseDate.

Time.now.strftime("%a %b %d %H:%M:%S %z %Y")
=> “Wed May 03 15:37:18 Eastern Daylight Time 2006”

Note the use of “%z” as opposed to “%Z”. Windows is hosed.

Actually, I guess %z is just a synonym for %Z. I misread the docs.

Anyway, the registry setting is
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/System/CurrentControlSet/Control/TimeZoneInformation.
The keys are StandardName and DaylightName.

HTH,

Yeah. My point about Windows being hosed doesn’t change that the
parser needs to be fixed. It’s just a lot harder to fix that.
