What is a Tick in python?

The floating-point numbers in units of seconds for time interval are indicated by Tick in python. Particular instants in time are expressed in seconds since 12:00am, January 1, 1970(epoch). You can use the time module to use functions for working with times, and for converting between representations. For example, if you want to print the current time in ticks, you'd write:


import time
ticks = time.time()
print("Ticks since 12:00am, January 1, 1970: ", ticks)


This will give the output −
