Subject: Bad date format in x-axis labels
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 215b
The format for the date/time labels for the X-axis are hard-codes US/ American style. A nice module, easy to use, but US-style date formats are not acceptable in Europe, and there is no way to overwrite the format

actually, this module does not use the standard (and ambiguous) American date format "10/11". instead it uses the unabiguous "10/Nov" format. It uses the standard strftime() function to generate these labels, which is locale aware. your locale can be configured via the POSIX::setlocale() function or via various LC_* environment variables. See your manual for details.

Then is still uses the *fixed* '/' as separator, which is extremely unusual in e.g. the Netherlands Ok, my statement was too harsh. sorry, but I start flipping when software imposes wrong formats on me like Letter paper format instead of A4 even when my locale is set correctly (wink to LibreOffice) or date/time formats (looking at LANG or LC_ALL instead of LC_TIME). -- H.Merijn Brand http://tux.nl Perl Monger http://amsterdam.pm.org/ using 5.00307 through 5.14 and porting perl5.15.x on HP-UX 10.20, 11.00, 11.11, 11.23 and 11.31, OpenSuSE 10.1, 11.0 .. 11.4 and AIX 5.2 and 5.3. http://mirrors.develooper.com/hpux/ http://www.test-smoke.org/ http://qa.perl.org http://www.goldmark.org/jeff/stupid-disclaimers/
