Format meaning:
%a – The abbreviated weekday name (“Sun”)
%A – The full weekday name (“Sunday”)
%b – The abbreviated month name (“Jan”)
%B – The full month name (“January”)
%c – The preferred local date and time representation
%d – Day of the month (01..31)
%H – Hour of the day, 24-hour clock (00..23)
%I – Hour of the day, 12-hour clock (01..12)
%j – Day of the year (001..366)
%m – Month of the year (01..12)
%M – Minute of the hour (00..59)
%p – Meridian indicator (“AM” or “PM”)
%S – Second of the minute (00..60)
%U – Week number of the current year, starting with the first Sunday as the first day of the first week (00..53)
%W – Week number of the current year, starting with the first Monday as the first day of the first week (00..53)
%w – Day of the week (Sunday is 0, 0..6)

%X – Preferred representation for the time alone, no date
%y – Year without a century (00..99)

For example,

t = Time.now

t.strftime(“at %I:%M%p”) #=> “at 08:56AM”
