Gnulib module: strftime-fixes
Portability problems fixed by Gnulib:
- On native Windows platforms (mingw, MSVC), this function works incorrectly
when the environment variable
TZ has been set by Cygwin.
Portability problems not fixed by Gnulib:
- The Windows C runtime library (which is used by MinGW) does not
support the %e specifier (and possibly the other more recent SUS
specifiers too, i.e., %C, %D, %h, %n, %r, %R, %t, and %T).
- Native Windows platforms (mingw, MSVC) support only a subset of time
zones supported by GNU or specified by POSIX. See tzset.
Extension: Gnulib offers a module ‘nstrftime’ that provides an
nstrftime function with various GNU extensions.
