Hi - I'm trying to use strftime to output the day of the week but I
find that I always get told it's Monday. I have tried day, month, year
etc and all come out correctly but as soon as I use %a I get 'Mon'.
I'm running Python 2.3.2 on a Windows 98 machine. Can anyone suggest
what the problem might be please ?
This is a segment of the code which is manfests the behaviour ...
>>> from time import localtime,strftime,time
>>> lst1 = ['2003','12','27']
>>> strftime("%A,%d (%w %y
'Monday,27 (1 03 12)'
... whereas the 27th was a Saturday ?
