Description

Time#inspect shows a fractional number.

irb(main):001:0> Time.at(0.5)
=> 1970-01-01 09:00:00.5 +0900
irb(main):002:0> Time.at(0.1)
=> 1970-01-01 09:00:00 3602879701896397/36028797018963968 +0900

Is this intentional?

This is intentional. There was no way to distinguish Time objects that differ in a fraction of a second.
The behavior of Time#to_s kept unchanged for compatibility.
