Python: Get the time values with components using local time and gmtime

Python Datetime: Exercise-56 with Solution

Write a Python program to get time values with components using local time and gmtime.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

import time
def time_struct(s):
   print(' tm_year :', s.tm_year)
   print(' tm_mon :', s.tm_mon)
   print(' tm_mday :', s.tm_mday)
   print(' tm_hour :', s.tm_hour)
   print(' tm_min :', s.tm_min)
   print(' tm_sec :', s.tm_sec)
   print(' tm_wday :', s.tm_wday)
   print(' tm_yday :', s.tm_yday)
   print(' tm_isdst:', s.tm_isdst)
print('\nlocaltime:')
time_struct(time.localtime())
print('\ngmtime:')
time_struct(time.gmtime())

Sample Output:

localtime:
 tm_year : 2021
 tm_mon : 4
 tm_mday : 13
 tm_hour : 11
 tm_min : 20
 tm_sec : 37
 tm_wday : 1
 tm_yday : 103
 tm_isdst: 0

gmtime:
 tm_year : 2021
 tm_mon : 4
 tm_mday : 13
 tm_hour : 11
 tm_min : 20
 tm_sec : 37
 tm_wday : 1
 tm_yday : 103
 tm_isdst: 0

Previous: The epoch is the point where the time starts, and is platform dependent. For Unix, the epoch is January 1, 1970, 00:00:00 (UTC). Write a Python program to find out what the epoch is on a given platform. Also convert a given time in seconds since the epoch.
Next: Write a Python program to get different time values with components timezone, timezone abbreviations, the offset of the local (non-DST) timezone, DST timezone and time of different timezones.
