time.strftime() function in Python
As time module provides various time-related functions. So it is necessary to import the time module otherwise it will through error because of the definition of time.strftime(format[, t]) is present in time module.
time.strftime(format[, t]) function convert a tuple or struct_time representing a time as returned by gmtime() or localtime() to a string as specified by the format argument.
If t is not provided, the current time as returned by localtime() is used. The format must be a string. ValueError is raised if any field in t is outside of the allowed range.
0 is a legal argument for any position in the time tuple; if it is normally illegal the value is forced to a correct one.
Syntax: time.strftime(format[, t])
t – time in number of seconds to be formatted
format – This is of string type. i.e. the directives can be embedded in the format string.
Return value: None
There are many directives that can be embedded in the format string, you can refer them here.
- When used with the strptime() function, the %p directive only affects the output hour field if the %I directive is used to parse the hour.
- The range really is 0 to 61; value 60 is valid in timestamps representing leap seconds and value 61 is supported for historical reasons.
- When used with the strptime() function, %U and %W are only used in calculations when the day of the week and the year are specified.
Below is the implementation:
Example 1: Tue, 25 Jun 2019 10:09:52 + 1010 Example 2: Tuesday, 06/25/19 June 2019 10:09:52 + 0000 Example 3: Tue Jun 25 10:09:52 2019 Example 4: 20 Example 5: Tuesday, 06/25/19 June 2019, 10:09:52 AM, MOTY:06 DOTY:% j Example 6: 10:09 Example 7: Tue, 25 Jun 2019 10:09:52 + 0000 Example 8: 10:09:52 AM, 10:09:52 Example 9: 10:09:52 AM, 2, 25 Example 10: 10:09:52 AM, 26, 25, 2 Example 11: 06/25/19, 10:09:52, 19, 2019 Example 12: 10:09:52 AM, +0000, UTC
