Some of Time Functions are discussed in Set 1
Date manipulation can also be performed using Python using “datetime” module and using “date” class in it.
Operations on Date :
1. MINYEAR :- It displays the minimum year that can be represented using date class.
2. MAXYEAR :- It displays the maximum year that can be represented using date class.
Minimum representable year is : 1 Maximum representable year is : 9999
3. date(yyyy-mm-dd) :- This function returns a string with passed arguments in order of year, months and date.
4. today() :- Returns the date of present day in the format yyyy-mm-dd.
The represented date is : 1997-04-01 Present date is : 2016-08-02
5. fromtimestamp(sec) :- It returns the date calculated from the seconds elapsed since epoch mentioned in arguments.
6. min() :- This returns the minimum date that can be represented by date class.
7. max() :- This returns the maximum date that can be represented by date class.
The calculated date from seconds is : 1970-02-09 Minimum representable date is : 0001-01-01 Maximum representable date is : 9999-12-31
