Instant getNano() method in Java with Examples

The getNano() method of Instant class is used to return the number of nanoseconds later in the time-line represented in this instant, from the start of the second. The nanosecond-of-second value which measures the total number of nanoseconds from the second value returned by getEpochSecond().

Syntax:

public int getNano()

Returns: This method returns the nanoseconds within the second value which is always positive and never exceeds 999, 999, 999.



Below programs illustrate the getNano() method:
