The following bug has been logged online:
Bug reference: 6113
Logged by: David Carlos Manuelda
Email address: StormByte(at)gmail(dot)com
PostgreSQL version: 9.0.4
Operating system: Gentoo Linux
Description: SET DATESTYLE='European' does not set datestyle output
According to Doc (http://www.postgresql.org/docs/7.2/static/sql-set.html),
there are different datestyles available to format date outputs.
But either is a bug in doc or is a bug in postgre itself, but 'European'
does not currently do what it is intended (it does nothing actually).
Testcase 1: OK
Use dd.mm.yyyy for numeric date representations.
Testcase 2: FAIL!
As you can see, SET DATESTYLE='European' just did nothing and did not change
it from last set which was 'German', and of course, it does not even outputs
what was expected and stated in documentation.
