Issue #16440 has been updated by wishdev (John Higgins).


Nothing strange with your example - but that doesn't mean it totally works right.

First your example is a DATE range - so adding this line

`(may1..may31).each { |x| puts x }`

That shows that your set is each day within the range at Midnight - therefore any other time is not included (and in fact on my system - the to_time option returns false instead of true).

BUT, on the other hand - one might imagine that something like

`may1 = DateTime.parse("2019-05-01")
may31 = DateTime.parse("2019-05-31")
noon_of_may3 = DateTime.parse("2019-05-03 12:00")
(may1..may31).include? noon_of_may3`

Should get a true for the include

It appears though, that DateTime ranges only use the exact Time each day of the range

`(may1..may31).each { |x| puts x }`

Shows this with the DateTime range.

So I don't believe there is an issue with the code as you have it - but there might be a conversation as to why a DateTime range does not appear to work for your example.

Bug #16440: Date range inclusion behaviors are inconsistent

----------------------------------------
It's weird that a Date range can include Time and DateTime objects that were converted from a Date object. But it can't include a newly generated DateTime object. For example:

```
may1 = Date.parse("2019-05-01")
may3 = Date.parse("2019-05-03")
noon_of_may3 = DateTime.parse("2019-05-03 12:00")
may31 = Date.parse("2019-05-31")

(may1..may31).include? may3 # => True
(may1..may31).include? may3.to_time # => True
(may1..may31).include? may3.to_datetime # => True
(may1..may31).include? noon_of_may3 # => False
```

Shouldn't the last case return `true` as well?
