Python

datetime.datetime.fromtimestamp()

What kinds of arguments can you pass into this? I read in the docs that you can pass time.time().

Hiya there!! I just went through the DateTime docs. This is how they've defined DateTime.

classmethod datetime.fromtimestamp(timestamp, tz=None): Return the local date and time corresponding to the POSIX timestamp, such as is returned by time.time(). If optional argument tz is None or not specified, the timestamp is converted to the platform’s local date and time, and the returned datetime object is naive.

It takes a timestamp and have a default value of "None" to tz(timezone info). Just like "time.time()". It returns the local date and time. I recommend you to try out in python console. I hope it helped. (:

how do I define or call a timestamp?
