If strlen($format) >= 1024, then the output of strftime($format, $date) is the empty string.

I'd at least like to see a note of this appear in strftime()'s documentation.exactly

Reproduce code:
strftime(str_repeat('a', 1024), time())

Expected result:
str_repeat('a', 1024)

Actual result:

This bug has been fixed in the documentation's XML sources. Since the
online and downloadable versions of the documentation need some time
to get updated, we would like to ask you to be a bit patient.

Thank you for the report, and for helping us make our documentation better.

"Maximum length of this parameter is 1023 characters."
