Pythom time method mktime() is the opposite purpose of localtime(). Its row is the struct_time or full 9-tuple and it revisits a balanced point number, for compatibility through time(). If the key value never be represented as a applicable time, either OverflowError or ValueError will be hoistd.
Following is the syntax for mktime() method:
This method returns a floating point number, for compatibility with time().
The following example shows the usage of mktime() method.
t = (2009, 2, 17, 17, 3, 38, 1, 48, 0)
secs = time.mktime( t )
print "time.mktime(t) : %f" % secs
print "asctime(localtime(secs)): %s" % time.asctime(time.localtime(secs))
When we run above program, it produces following result:
time.mktime(t) : 1234915418.000000
asctime(localtime(secs)): Tue Feb 17 17:03:38 2009
