Bug #12310: ctime vs asctime - Documentation Issue? - http://ruby-doc.org/core-2.3.0/Time.html

----------------------------------------
All,

I was working through the Time Class documentation at http://ruby-doc.org/core-2.3.0/Time.html.

I noted a potential typo in the example code as per below.

~~~
**ctime** вк string click to toggle source
Returns a canonical string representation of time.

Time.now.**asctime**   #=> "Wed Apr  9 08:56:03 2003"

~~~


The example code references a separate method (asctime) as oppose to ctime.

Running "methods" on a time object does reference two separate methods:-

asctime
ctime

I did a search and could not find a bug relating to this.

Best regards,

Robert
