I'm getting 3 unprintable characters after April when use Date::MONTHNAMES. So I get JanuaryFebruaryMarchAprilxxxMayJune....etc but the 3 'x's are unprintable characters!! What is this April fool doing wrong? It the same if I use strftime, or mydate.month. thanks in advance

Hi, Maybe you have corrupted Ruby installation or just corrupted date.rb file. I have no unprintable characters here: >> require 'date' => true >> Date::MONTHNAMES => [nil, "January", "February", "March", "April", "May", "June", "July", "August", "September", "October", "November", "December"] -- Martins

I think something got corrupted in memory and RadRails didn't reload after the corruption. Today (same code) the problem is not there. Yesterday I checked the disk file date.rb and it was uncorrupted but the spurious chars were present. Oh well... lesson learned: shut down RadRails and restart if file corruption is suspected.
