Python Time ctime() Method with example

Hello guys! Welcome back to another section of my tutorial on Python. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be studying about Python Time ctime() method.

The Python's Time ctime() function converts a time which is expressed in seconds since the epoch to a string representing local time. If secs is not provided, the current time as returned by time() is been used. This method is equivalent to the asctime(). Local information is not used by ctime()      


The following below is the syntax for the Python Time ctime() method -

time.ctime( [ sec ] )

Parameter Details

  • sec - Number of seconds that are to be converted into string representation.

Return Value

This method does not return any value.


The following below is a simple example -

import time

print "time.ctime() : %s" % time.ctime()

Below is the output of the above example -

time.ctime() : Wed Jul 15 14:02:31 2020

Alright guys! This is where we are rounding up for this tutorial post. In my next tutorial, we are going to be discussing about the Python Time gmtime() method.
