Attached patch to support %s in Cygwin winsup libc strptime.cc __strptime().
This also enables support for %s in dateutils package strptime(1).
In case the issue comes up, if the user wants to support %s as in date(1) with a
preceding @ flag, they just have to include that verbatim before the format as
Testing revealed a separate issue with %F format which I will follow up on in a
Similar patch coming for newlib.
Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
