I have error:
test_http_clients.rb:12:in `

': uninitialized constant FMTSTR (NameError)

in ruby 2 FMTSTR is replaced by FORMAT
the default value if nil is given is :

"%10.6u %10.6y %10.6t %10.6r\n"

you can check an example here:

http://www.ruby-doc.org/stdlib-2.0/libdoc/benchmark/rdoc/Benchmark.html

and the format here:
