  • Last Updated : 17 Sep, 2019

time.clock_settime() method of Time module is used to set the time (in seconds) of the specified clock clk_id. Basically, clk_id is a integer value which represents the id of the clock.

Syntax: time.clock_settime(clk_id, seconds)

Parameters:
clk_id: A clk_id constant or an integer value representing clk_id of the clock.

Return type: This method does not return any value.

Code: Use of time.clock_settime() method




# Python program to explain time.clock_settime() method
  
# importing time module
import time
  
  
# clk_id for System-wide real-time clock
clk_id = time.CLOCK_REALTIME
  
  
# Get the current value of
# system-wide real-time clock (in seconds)
# using time.clock_gettime() method
t = time.clock_gettime(clk_id) 
  
print("Current value of system-wide real-time clock: % d seconds" % t)
  
# Set the new value of
# time (in seconds) for
# System-wide real-time clock
# using time.clock_settime() method
seconds = 10000000
time.clock_settime(clk_id, seconds)
  
print("\nTime  modified")
  
  
# Get the modified value of
# system-wide real-time clock (in seconds)
# using time.clock_gettime() method
t = time.clock_gettime(clk_id) 
print("\nCurrent value of system-wide real-time clock: % d seconds" % t)
Output:
Current value of system-wide real-time clock: 1568589568 seconds

Time  modified

Current value of system-wide real-time clock: 10000000 seconds
