Thank you for your answer!

You presumed right that date contains datetime. However, I have no idea why do you think I use sqliteI said I have a Pg (i.e. PostgreSQL) database table. :)

The thing is that Pg does not support strftime() function.

So, according to your answer I believe that DBI does not get the selected values (i.e. the output from select distinct cast(...)) or it does not understand/use the cast() function, instead it selects the timestamp value (the actual value) instead of the casted one. Is that right? Is this expected? I believe it is not. And if it is so, I would say it is a bug. What do you think?
