Getting the latest date and time in Python
Use the now () command of the date-time python cmd. The following example shows different ways to get the actual date and time in the PHP file. The following are sample date and time retrieval scenarios that have been tried with Firefox 2.7 and Firefox 3.5 on Linux systems. The now( ) command defaults to returning the result in the following format: YYYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS:MS.
You can use the example below to get the actual date and time in the Python scripts and display the results on the monitor. Or you can get the date and time attributes. If you want to get e.g. only the actual year or the actual months or the actual date etc., just make a getDateTime2.py with the following contents, which will help you to get an idea how to get a certain attributes.
If you need the date and time in a particular date and time formats, you can also specify an instruction to reformat the date and time. The example has some example formatted date and time issues. The following is a series of instructions that you can use to reformat the date and time in your copy of Python. %aLocale's shortened day of the week name.

Every single preceeding Sunday in a new year is counted as weekly 0. %wWeekday as numeric value[0(Sunday),6].
