Time localtime() Method


The method localtime() is similar to gmtime() but it converts number of seconds to local time. If secs is not provided or None, the current time as returned by time() is used. The dst flag is set to 1 when DST applies to the given time.


Following is the syntax for localtime() method −

time.localtime([ sec ])


  • sec − These are the number of seconds to be converted into structure struct_time representation.

Return Value

This method does not return any value.


The following example shows the usage of localtime() method.

import time
print ("time.localtime() : ".format(time.localtime()))

When we run the above program, it produces the following output

time.localtime() : time.struct_time(tm_year=2023, tm_mon=4, tm_mday=20, tm_hour=0, tm_min=8, tm_sec=24, tm_wday=3, tm_yday=110, tm_isdst=0)
