Description Thomas Schwanhäuser 2007-07-30 10:30:20 EDT
Description of problem:

One can not distinguish June and July, because their shortnames are abbreviated 
too much.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

echo short month name of day 18-July-2006 and 18-June-2006

Actual results:

18-June-2006 gets 18-Jui-2006
18-July-2006 gets 18-Jui-2006

Expected results:

Windows does it in the following way, seems reasonable:

Which glibc version or RHEL version?
I have tried all of RHEL3, RHEL4 and RHEL5 glibc and all of them use
jun as abbrev. for June and jui for July.
Comment 2 Thomas Schwanhäuser 2007-07-30 10:59:17 EDT
Arch   : x86_64
Version: 2.5
Release: 18.fc6

Additional info: We're using %b in strftime.

Best regards,


Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2007-07-30 11:11:58 EDT
Then it surely has nothing to do with RHEL, so why are you filling it against
That said, in FC6 I get:
LC_ALL=fr_FR.UTF-8 locale LC_TIME -k | grep abmon
(and similarly for fr_FR), so unless you use your custom locale for fr_FR, you
really can't see the same abmon names for June and July.  Also note that glibc
abmon names are lowercase.

LC_ALL=fr_FR.UTF-8 date -d 2007-06-01
ven jun  1 00:00:00 CEST 2007
LC_ALL=fr_FR.UTF-8 date -d 2007-07-01
dim jui  1 00:00:00 CEST 2007
LC_ALL=fr_FR date -d 2007-06-01 | iconv -f ISO-8859-15// -t UTF-8//
ven jun  1 00:00:00 CEST 2007
LC_ALL=fr_FR date -d 2007-07-01 | iconv -f ISO-8859-15// -t UTF-8//
dim jui  1 00:00:00 CEST 2007
