CakePHP 3.1.6 - Time::_formatObject throws exception "calling ->format on a null" on what should be valid data

glk
I've modified the Time::_formatObject function allow some debug info (beginning at line 617) as follows:


debug($date);
debug($format);
debug($locale);
debug($dateFormat);
debug($timeFormat);
debug($timezone);
debug($calendar);
debug($pattern);

            static::$_formatters[$key] = datefmt_create(
                $locale,
                $dateFormat,
                $timeFormat,
                $timezone,
                $calendar,
                $pattern
            );
        }
debug($_formatters[$key]);
die();
        return static::$_formatters[$key]->format($date);


The output:

\src\I18n\Time.php (line 617)
object(Cake\I18n\Time) {

	'time' => '2016-01-05T17:25:10-0700',
	'timezone' => 'America/Denver',
	'fixedNowTime' => false

}
\src\I18n\Time.php (line 618)
[
	(int) 0 => 'yyyyMMdd',
	(int) 1 => (int) -1
]
\src\I18n\Time.php (line 619)
'en_US'
\src\I18n\Time.php (line 620)
'yyyyMMdd'
\src\I18n\Time.php (line 621)
(int) -1
\src\I18n\Time.php (line 622)
'America/Denver'
\src\I18n\Time.php (line 623)
(int) 1
\src\I18n\Time.php (line 624)
null
Warning (2): datefmt_create() expects parameter 2 to be long, string given [CORE\src\I18n\Time.php, line 633]
Notice (8): Undefined variable: _formatters [CORE\src\I18n\Time.php, line 635]
\src\I18n\Time.php (line 635)
null


I really don't understand why the format() routine wants a long value... It could be a string with hh:ss   etc... 
However, I happend to use \IntlDateFormatter::NONE for the timeFormat.

The error manifests due the return statement trying to execute ->format on a null pointer.

Ok, the docs do say that the $format variable can be either an array of two integers or a single string value specifying a pattern.  I see no reason that the array could not be two patterns, but will just cover my calls to i18nFormat with another function to make the corrections. 

The _formatObject does exactly what the docs say!  Maybe the docs could emphasize it a littler more, and the function should probably throw a more informative InvalidArgumentException?
