Python Time localtime() Method with example



Hello guys! Welcome back to another section of my tutorial on Python. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be discussing about the Python's Time localtime() method.

Python Time localtime() function is similar to gmtime() but it converts number of seconds to local time. If secs is not provided, the current time as returned by time() is used. The dst flag is set to 1 when DST applies to the given time.

Syntax

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

time.localtime( [ sec ] )


Parameter Details

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

Return Value

This method does not return any value.

Example

The following below is a simple example -

#!/usr/bin/python
import time

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

Output
Below is the output of the above example -

time.localtime() : time.struct_time(tm_year=2020,  tm_mon=7,  tm_mday=15,  tm_hours=16,  tm_min=3,  tm_sec=58,  tm_wday=2,  tm_yday=197,  tm_isdst=0)


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 mktime() method.
