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

Python Operating System Services: Exercise-20 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 : 2020
 tm_mon : 1
 tm_mday : 20
 tm_hour : 11
 tm_min : 58
 tm_sec : 13
 tm_wday : 0
 tm_yday : 20
 tm_isdst: 0

gmtime:
 tm_year : 2020
 tm_mon : 1
 tm_mday : 20
 tm_hour : 11
 tm_min : 58
 tm_sec : 13
 tm_wday : 0
 tm_yday : 20
 tm_isdst: 0

Previous: 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.

Python: Unpack a Tuple

>>> items = (0, 'b', 'one', 10,  11, 'zero')
>>> a, b, c, d, e, f = items
>>> print(f)
zero
>>> a, *b, c = items
>>> print(b)
['b', 'one', 10, 11]
>>> *_, a, b = items
>>> print(a)
11
