I'm trying to use strftime() to microsecond precision, which seems possible using %f (as stated here). However when I try the following code:
import time import strftime from time print strftime("%H:%M:%S.%f")
...I get the hour, the minutes and the seconds, but %f prints as %f, with no sign of the microseconds. I'm running Python 2.6.5 on Ubuntu, so it should be fine and %f should be supported (it's supported for 2.6 and above, as far as I know.)
You can use datetime's strftime function to get this. The problem is that time's strftime accepts a timetuple that does not carry microsecond information.
from datetime import datetime datetime.now().strftime("%H:%M:%S.%f")
Should do the trick!
