Alex Shinn suggested the other day on #chicken to remove the #\newline
character from the string returned by "time->string" (which is, after
all, pretty silly
to have by default, but that's what asctime(3) returns). Every time I
use this function, I feel I have to cringe.
After grepping through the repository, I found the following uses:
chicken: posixunix.scm, posixunix.scm (naturally)
This may break existing applications.
I'm normally rather reluctant to make backwards-incompatible changes
(do I hear someone laugh there in the audience?), but since a new
major release is due, and we have branched the repository for exactly
these kind of changes we might as well do it now.
So, if you feel time->string should keep the trailing #\newline,
pleae speek up.
