Example 1 In the following example code, we remove the offset of 10 days using to_offset(“10D”) from the pandas pd.to_datetime(‘2018-01-04’). from pandas.tseries.frequencies import to_offset import pandas as pd dt = pd.to_datetime('2018-01-04') - to_offset("10D") print(type(dt)) print(dt) Output The output of the above code is as follows. ...

The timetuple() method of instances returns an object of type time.struct_time. The struct_time is a named tuple object (A named tuple object has attributes that can be accessed by an index or by name).  exampleYou can print the complete time tuple by simply passing it to print.import datetime todaysDate = timeTuple = todaysDate.timetuple() print(timeTuple)OutputThis will give the output −time.struct_time(tm_year=2017, tm_mon=12, tm_mday=28, tm_hour=0, tm_min=0, tm_sec=0, tm_wday=3, tm_yday=362, tm_isdst=-1)

To get the timer ticks at a given time, use the clock. The python docs state that this function should be used for benchmarking purposes. Exampleimport time t0= time.clock() print("Hello") t1 = time.clock() - t0 print("Time elapsed: ", t1 - t0) # CPU seconds elapsed (floating point)OutputThis will give the output −Time elapsed:  0.0009403145040156798Note that different systems will have different accuracy based on their internal clock setup (ticks per second). but it's generally at least under 20ms. Also note that clock returns different things on different platforms. On Unix, it returns the current processor time as a floating point number expressed ... Read More

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:Exampleimport time ticks = time.time() print("Ticks since 12:00am, January 1, 1970: ", ticks)OutputThis will give the output −Ticks since 12:00 am, January 1, 1970:  1514482031.2905385
