I've check how I could use strftime but did not find...
Characters I handle are characters handled by strftime on most linux
system (SVr4, C89, C89 + Single Unix Specification, Olson's timezone
package and glibc extension)
I think handling more characters is better than less. There is, I
guess, fewer probability that someone tried to display a raw %P (it's
a GNU extension) than someone trying to display 'am' or 'pm' on GNU
But I could restrict the character set to SVr4, C89, C89.
