Hi all.

If there's one thing I miss about PHP, it must be date(). PHP's date()
function is similar in purpose to Time.strftime, only with a whole
slew of extra formatting options. For more info, see
http://php.net/date

However, ruby seems to have no equivalent function. So I made my own.
(Well, not entirely. I copied it from
http://simon.incutio.com/archive/2003/10/07/dateInPython)

Attached. It works like this:

Time.now.format "jS M Y"     # => "18th Jul 2005"

I'd like to have this in the core, if people like it.
