Issue #4662 has been updated by tadayoshi funaba.

Status changed from Assigned to Closed

%v must be nonstandard.
pd version gives "21-MAY-2011" for today.
some BSD dist's strftime gives "21-May-2011" that is also my choice.

this time i adopted pd version which is same as Time's one.
the one of reasons is "VMS like" if  v means VMS.

i'm not sure, but, anyway, revert.

Bug #4662: Date#strftime %v gives allcaps instead of normal caps
http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/4662

Target version: 1.9.3
ruby -v: ruby 1.9.3dev (2011-05-09 trunk 31496) [x86_64-darwin10.5.0]


Since the big strftime changes of past month strftime gives a capitalised month abbreviation like so: 


    '%v'=>[' 3-FEB-2001' {:mday=>3,:mon=>2,:year=>2001}]

This is different from before where:

    '%v'=>[' 3-Feb-2001',{:mday=>3,:mon=>2,:year=>2001}],


Is there a reason for this change or was it accidental? It breaks with all previous ruby versions and is also inconsistent with for example %b or %c.
