Python: Display the current date and time
Python Basic: Exercise-3 with Solution
Write a Python program to display the current date and time.
The datetime module supplies classes for manipulating dates and times in both simple and complex ways. datetime.now(tz=None) returns the current local date and time. If optional argument tz is None or not specified, this is like today().
date.strftime(format) returns a string representing the date, controlled by an explicit format string. Format codes referring to hours, minutes or seconds will see 0 values.
import datetime now = datetime.datetime.now() print ("Current date and time : ") print (now.strftime("%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S"))
Current date and time : 2014-07-05 14:34:14
